Stimulus bill to aid independent restaurants hit hardest in pandemic

Millions of independent restaurant owners and employees displaced or struggling because of the pandemic could soon see relief through federal legislation that specifically targets them for help. 

A bipartisan bill introduced in both houses of Congress last month called the RESTAURANTS Act 2020 would provide $120 billion in grants to assist restaurateurs to rehire workers and for other operating expenses. 

Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat, is the lead Senate sponsor along with Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker, a Republican.

Fitzpatrick Statement on Police Reform Legislative Packages

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Over the past month, our nation has been coming to terms with the harsh reality and circumstances surrounding the murder of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, and the subsequent social unrest that our country has experienced. The horrifying video footage documenting his murder while in police custody has shaken the conscience of our entire nation. George Floyd’s murder was a horrendous injustice of epic proportions that should never happen in any society.
