Cal Cities weekly COVID-19 update: Feb. 4-10

February 10, 2021
Some good news for cities out of Washington, D.C.!
Last night, the U.S. House Oversight and Reform Committee released draft legislation that includes $350 billion in emergency relief for state and local governments. The draft meets Cal Cities’ top legislative priority of delivering direct and flexible federal resources for pandemic response and recovery for cities of all sizes. In addition, there is no minimum population requirement, and the funding can be used to replace lost revenue, which is a first!  
Thank you and all of our members who joined Cal Cities in urging congressional leadership to take swift and urgent action on comprehensive coronavirus relief legislation that includes direct and flexible funding for all cities. Read more about the emergency relief and next steps in Cal Cities Executive Director Carolyn Coleman’s message.
