Washington, DC – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has released the below statement following this afternoon’s House vote to increase the amount in government-issued stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000:

“After months of Nancy Pelosi’s partisan games and politicization of COVID-19 relief that many hardworking families need, I voted to increase the amount of direct economic support for the hardworking families across my district,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I remain focused on providing critical relief for our hardworking families, small businesses, schools, hospitals, farms, and communities who need our support. I will continue to support efforts to deliver funding directly back to the North Country as we overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.”
