The Senate could vote on a new $2 TRILLON+ COVID-19 relief package shortly. Negotiations are extremely fluid.

Protecting our members’ cash flows and access to capital;
Infusions of funding into direct federal and federal-aid construction accounts;
Enacting multi-year reauthorizations of federal and federal-aid construction programs; and
Maintaining the viability of multiemployer pension and health plans on which millions of participants, retirees and contributing employers depend.
