We are excited to report that the bipartisan SAFE Banking Act continues to have the support of Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives and may still become law during this session of Congress!
Late Monday night, the Democrats in the House released a new, scaled-down COVID relief package, which they are calling HEROES Act 2.0. In spite of repeated Republican jabs about the inclusion of the SAFE Banking Act in the Democrats' original HEROES Act, Democratic leadership refused to jettison the legislation.
The inclusion of SAFE is significant, as there now seems to be momentum toward passing a relief package prior to the election — and possibly within the week. CTF and its allies continue to work the phones, emails, and texts in order to increase the chances that the final COVID relief bill will include the SAFE Banking Act.
We will keep you posted as events unfold.
