Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers Signs Letter Urging Congress to Pass $1.9 Trillion American Rescue Plan

TOPEKA—Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers today signed onto a letter urging Congress to take immediate action on the comprehensive coronavirus relief package, including desperately needed funding for states, counties, cities, schools, and families.

“Hardworking Kansans are struggling financially as a result of the ongoing pandemic,” said Kansas State Treasurer Lynn Rogers. “What Kansas families, schools, hospitals, small businesses, and local governments need right now is for Congress to act swiftly to pass President Biden’s coronavirus relief legislation. Without the help of the federal government, many of these average working families are at risk of falling into poverty through no fault of their own.”

The letter is part of a national initiative organized by For the Long Term, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization. It has also been signed onto by governors, lieutenant Governors, state treasurers, state auditors, mayors, county supervisors, commissioners, councilmembers, state legislators, and school board members from across the United States. The letter will be sent to members of Congress in the coming days.
