100 DAYS OF NY-21 RESULTS, DAY 13: SUPPORTING OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT FAMILIES DURING COVID-19

August 7, 2020

Saratoga, NY: Today, Elise for Congress released the 13th Result in the campaign’s 100 Days, 100 Results program highlighting 100 of the critical wins that Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has delivered to the North Country.

“Our law enforcement officers are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic working to keep our families safe,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “That’s why I voted in favor of allowing families of law enforcement officers who contracted COVID-19 to be eligible for survivors benefits of up to $25,000. Our law enforcement make incredible sacrifices on behalf of our communities, and I will keep working to ensure that their families receive the support that they deserve.”

Elise proudly supported the bipartisan Public Safety Officer Pandemic Response Act. This legislation would make public safety officers who contracted COVID-19 eligible for Bureau of Justice Assistance. This important legislation will ensure that our public safety officers who have fallen victim to COVID-19 are eligible for rightfully owed benefits.

Elise for Congress will release a new Result each day through the November 3rd election to highlight the campaign’s laser focus on Real Results for the North Country.
