From the opening statement of Maxine Waters: "The coronavirus pandemic crisis continues to cause terrible harm across the nation. Over 189,000 people have lost their lives to the virus in the United States, and there have been over 6.3 million cases nationwide. Last week's jobs numbers showed an unemployment rate still over 10 percent for Black, Hispanic, and Asian workers, and millions of families are in danger of being evicted from their homes as they struggle just to make ends meet. Today, we will be discussing the urgent need for Congress to provide financial relief to the nation's States and Territories during this crisis."
