I am writing you, as you develop the highly needed next phases of COVID-19 response legislation, to ask that you include in it the bipartisan Covering Our FAS Allies Act (COFA Act, H.R. 4821 and S.2218). We appreciate that the Take Responsibility for Workers and Families Act (H.R. 6379) did include this measure, though we were disappointed that it was not a part of the final CARES Act. Given that COVID-19 affects people from all walks of life, all income levels, and all ages, we cannot exclude our COFA partners from the recovery. We look to your leadership to ensure this population, who contribute so much to our country, sees the end to what has become a cycle of neglect.
