Merkley & Wyden Welcome Stimulus Package Passage

Both Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley welcomed Wednesday night’s passage of a two trillion dollar stimulus package to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the House is expected to pass it Friday.  Merkley said during a Wednesday conference call with reporters that it’s not a perfect solution, but he’s pleased it is moving forward, noting the nervousness people are feeling right now both for their health and their economic future.  Wyden, who was a chief negotiator of the package, said it was the right step toward helping alleviate the economic pain so many are feeling.
