I am thrilled that the House finally passed the Build Back Better Act. This bill is a historic investment in the American people. A huge thank-you to our Southern Nevada Reps. Dina Titus, Steven Horsford and Susie Lee, all Democrats.
Build Back Better will help 300,000 new low-income renter households get assistance to help them afford a place to live. It also extends the new Child Tax Credit payments, which have already lifted more than 3 million children out of poverty. But Congress is cutting it close; the monthly payments are scheduled to end in December.
The bill now goes to the Senate. With so much on the line and the clock ticking, the Senate must pass this bill as soon as possible. Americans have waited far too long for Congress to get this done.
I strongly urge Nevada’s senators, Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen, to demand immediate consideration of the Build Back Better Act and to vote yes when it comes to a vote.
