As leaders and clergy of Coloradans for the Common Good, we call on you and your colleagues to swiftly pass a relief bill that: 

  • Supports the full $600 per week supplemental unemployment insurance;
  • Provides $100 Billion in Rent Assistance and extends the eviction moratorium;
  • Provide an income-limited stimulus payment to taxpayers ($1,200) and their children ($500 per dependent child) based on either a social security number or individual tax identification number;
  • Invest $175 Billion in Public Education to Reopen Schools Safely and Close the Digital Divide;
  • Increases the share of Medicaid paid by the federal government to free up state revenues for other essential services; and requires that all states maintain their current Medicaid services.

Each day, we see increasing devastation wrought upon our communities by the public health and economic crises that resulted from the Coronavirus pandemic. We ask you to act now. The best way to keep the economy afloat and save lives is to support our families. 

Signed,
Coloradans for the Common Good
