WISCONSIN — On Monday, March 1st at 1:00pm CT, State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, Racine Mayor Cory Mason, and local advocates will join Protect Our Care and For Our Future Wisconsin for a virtual press conference to urge Wisconsin’s US Senators to support President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, and provide desperately needed relief to Wisconsinites.
The American Rescue Plan includes historic and overwhelmingly popular provisions to lower health care costs and expand access to care. The plan includes funding to scale up vaccine distribution, protect families and frontline workers, support state & local government and boost struggling local businesses. It will also lower premiums for Wisconsinites purchasing coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA) marketplace and expand access to financial assistance for more middle-class families.
It also includes crucial measures to address racial disparities in COVID-19 treatment and outcomes.
