This is the July 29 and September 30, 2021 remote hearings on "Assessing the Federal Government's COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Relief and Response Efforts and Its Impact (Parts 1 and 2)," held before the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. From the July 29, 2021 opening statement of Peter A. DeFazio: "Today we will hear about the impact the Government's COVID-19 relief funding has had on the transportation sector and its workers who were heavily hit. Many transportation workers died. Many, many more became ill. But they kept the trains, the planes, and the buses running during this, and the light rail, anything that is related to transportation. And obviously, ridership went down. But they provided essential transportation to many, many critical workers during that time. And the economy would have been way worse off without their incredible sacrifice. So today we are here to look at the Government's response, and see that these Federal funds have been utilized efficiently and effectively. The pandemic, obviously, has had a huge and ongoing impact, and Congress took unprecedented steps to deal with that." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Paul P. Skoutelas, Juan Manuel Ortiz, Michael J. Boskin, Wendy Edelberg, and Gregory R. Regan.
