Governor Tim Walz, Senator Amy Klobuchar and Senator Tina Smith visited a community vaccination site at the Mall of America to applaud the newly-signed American Rescue Act.   The governor says it ensures…

…”Folks who did the right thing to protect public health, to protect their neighbors, who had to close their businesses or lose their jobs, that there would be compensation to make sure that they were made whole.”

But Walz says the 1.9-trillion-dollar package “does so much more.” Senator Amy Klobuchar:

“This is a momentous week because we can finally say to Americans that help is on the way.”

Senator Tina Smith spotlighted the child care tax credit, which she says is “really powerful” for lifting families out of poverty. Smith says the next challenge is making it permanent.
