Senator forces 11 hour reading of bill

Republican U.S. Senator Ron Johnson received both praise and backlash this week for forcing an 11-hour reading on the Senate floor for the proposed $1.9 trillion COVID19 relief package titled the American Rescue Plan. Johnson cited concerns of spending that would take place in 2022, 2023, and as far as 2028.

 

 

Johnson also voiced concerns of border security. Democratic U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin called for the plan to be passed, stating that this is the “investment our state needs to beat the pandemic, save our economy, and start getting our lives back to normal.” Saturday morning, the Senate passed the bill.
