I met with local child care providers in Ogdensburg to discuss the need for Congress to provide critical support to the child care industry. I'm fighting for $50 billion in federal relief to ensure providers can continue to stay open.

I visited the Distribution Center in Falconer, NY to discuss the need to expand the Pandemic-EBT program and increase investment in SNAP. As the number of families facing food insecurity continues to grow, strengthening these programs would give a vital lifeline.

If Congress can’t pass a relief plan by the end of September, people will be at risk of becoming homeless. The American people are suffering, dealing with lost jobs, struggling to put food on the table. We have to give them the relief they desperately need.

As Tropical Storm Isaias makes its way across New York State and communities experience power outages, I urge every New Yorker to pay attention to local weather and news alerts, and stay indoors if possible or exercise caution when traveling. Make sure to stay safe!

Even though millions of Americans are out of work and struggling to keep food on the table, Congress remains at an impasse for a deal on an economic relief package, with McConnell and his party unwilling to negotiate. We should do the right thing and pass the HEROES Act.

I am fighting alongside to make sure New York's public transit riders aren't left out of the new federal relief bill. We need at least $32 billion to keep the essential workers behind New York's reopening and recovery safely moving on trains and buses.

It’s simple: Congress needs to extend the $600 federal unemployment insurance benefit. Working families need this relief. There’s no time to wait, .

The Senate must extend the $600 federal unemployment insurance benefit as unemployment numbers continue to rise across the country. I’m urging to act now for struggling American workers.

Due to the pandemic, nearly half of all child care providers have had to shut their doors, which would leave millions of families without access to safe, quality child care when normal schedules resume. In Ithaca, I joined to discuss our efforts to help.

The need for safe, accessible, affordable child care has never been greater. Unfortunately, accessing that care was an issue even before the pandemic. In Rochester, I met with local child care providers to address these challenges as communities across New York State re-open.
