(Washington) - Representative Collin Peterson issued the following statement on the passage of The Coronavirus Relief Act, The CARES Act: 


"The passage of the CARES Act is another bipartisan step taken by Congress to rise to the unique and unprecedented challenge presented by the COVID-19 virus. I support this emergency disaster bill which directs much-needed resources to our rural hospitals, opens up emergency financing to help businesses and nonprofits, and provides significant direct assistance to impacted Americans. I continue to be impressed by the great spirit and sense of community I've been seeing each day and I will continue to do everything I can to support my constituents as we respond and recover from this crisis together."
