NRF Statement on Senate Passage of $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill

The National Retail Federation today issued the following statement from President and CEO Matthew Shay in response to the Senate passage of President Biden’s $1.9T coronavirus aid package.

“Ensuring that the American people are given the opportunity to quickly and safely get vaccinated against COVID-19 is the most critical component of the legislation passed today by the Senate. We encourage the House to move quickly so that the President can sign this signature piece of legislation into law. The retail industry has been front and center throughout this crisis and remains engaged by providing vaccines to employees and consumers in communities they serve across the country. While this legislation adds to the historic and unprecedented level of fiscal stimulus enacted during the past year, we continue to encourage targeted and temporary fiscal support for those families, small businesses and job creators hardest hit by the pandemic.”
