- Pass the Pandemic Risk Insurance Act of 2020 (H.R. 7011), which would establish a system of shared public and private compensation for business interruption losses and event cancellations resulting from future pandemics or public health emergencies. If enacted, this program would begin January 2021. Bill text.
- Pass the Skills Renewal Act (H.R. 7032 / S. 3779), per proposed amendment. The Skills Renewal Act would provide Americans who have been laid-off or furloughed due to COVID-19 a $4,000 tax credit to pursue post-secondary skills training and career development. Bill text.
