Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Ro Khanna (CA-17) joined Santa Clara and Alameda Counties in celebrating over $1 billion in funding for California’s 17th Congressional District in President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. Following Rep. Khanna’s vote in favor of the package on the House Floor, the Congressman was joined by both counties in issuing the below statement:

“As we turn the corner on one of our nation’s most trying years, there has never been a more urgent need for massive investment in our local and state governments. The American Rescue Plan Act is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to meet the severe needs of this economic and public health crisis, rising above partisanship to set our country down the road to recovery. We are humbled to receive over $1 billion in funding. Together with organizations here in the South and East Bay Area, we are eager to get to work sponsoring more vaccination sites, instituting better safety measures for in-person learning in our public schools, distributing additional relief for our small business owners, and so much more. We thank President Biden, Vice President Harris, and the many stakeholders who pushed this bill across the finish line.”
