WASHINGTON – According to a Bloomberg News report, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a limited COVID stimulus package that is woefully insufficient, failing to protect Americans facing water service shutoffs while promoting corporate liability measures.

In response, Food & Water Action Executive Director Wenonah Hauter released the following statement:

“This Republican proposal is nothing but a cruel joke. Once again, Mitch McConnell shows that he is more interested in protecting corporations that have put workers’ lives at risk than he is in protecting Americans who have lost their water service. As the COVID crisis only grows more deadly, this disgraceful proposal puts the lives of everyday Americans at even greater risk.”
