Working with the Biden-Harris Administration
The historic election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris marked a turning point for our nation to heal and unify once again. Congressman Scott Peters is looking forward to restoring bipartisan efforts of listening to each other and working together to solve problems and move our country forward.
Congressman Peters worked with his colleagues on the House Committee on the Budget and the Energy and Commerce Committee to refine the American Rescue Plan and ensure the package targeted relief to the families, businesses, and individuals who need it most. He successfully advocated for the inclusion of his Tracking COVID-19 Variants Act to help the CDC scale up genome sequencing efforts and effectively track new virus mutations. The final package also included funding for state and local governments to better support our communities, money to reopen schools safely and get our kids back in the classroom, and funding to scale up vaccine distribution.
