Courtney to Hold Tele-Town Hall on Wednesday to Answer Questions on $1.9 Trillion American Rescue Plan

Congressman Joe Courtney will hold a tele-town hall Wednesday, March 17 from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM to answer constituent questions about the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. 

Courtney, a Democrat representing Connecticut’s second congressional district, said in a press release that he hopes to shed light on what the newly passed COVID relief bill will mean for the communities he serves. 

“Passage of the bill extended Unemployment Insurance, it authorized a new round of funding for local restaurants and small businesses, and it directs support straight to our towns that will fund strained essential services from firehouses and police departments, to local schools right in our backyards,” Courtney said in a press release. “This bill will get more help where it’s needed, and fast.” 

Constituents can sign up here to participate, or watch the town hall live on Facebook or Courtney’s website.
