Another Day Without COVID Relief, Dishonest Daines Still on Vacation 
 
Helena, MT – Another day has passed as Senate Republicans refuse to extend expired COVID relief, yet Montanans are hearing only “crickets” from Washington, D.C., – with “no signs of resolution  or even efforts to find a way back to the bargaining table.” Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines is still missing in action, choosing to head home without making any progress towards securing essential funding for Montana.

While the House of Representatives passed pandemic relief aid nearly three months ago, Daines and his Republican colleagues in the Senate have failed to act. They’ve neglected the urgent needs of Montanans, including funding for state and local governments, and an extension of emergency unemployment benefits. 

“Washington, D.C. is broken because of politicians like Steve Daines who slowroll even the most critical legislation,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “In November, Montanans will hold Daines accountable for his shameful complacency and utter failure to fight for them during this unprecedented crisis.”
