ATU commends Senate for passing American Rescue Plan with $30 billion for transit, looks forward to quick House passage

Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) International President John Costa released the following statement regarding the Senate passing the American Rescue Plan.  

“The ATU applauds the Senate for passing the American Rescue Plan, including $30 billion for the hard-hit transit industry that has been ravaged by the pandemic. The bill also includes other critical provisions that the ATU has pushed for since the beginning of the outbreak. This much-needed aid will help ATU members and all working people recover from this crisis.  We now look forward to a quick passage of the bill by the House to get it on President Biden’s desk to quickly get relief to the American people and help our nation continue on the road to recovery.”
