Local elected officials react to Senate passing $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package

The American Rescue Plan Act received the support of Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey, as well as New Jersey Sens. Cory Booker and Bob Menendez. However, Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey joined Republican senators in opposing the $1.9 trillion relief package.
