Marco Rubio Champions Coronavirus Assistance for American Families Act to Increase EIPs
Last week, Rubio threw his support behind U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy’s, R-La., “Coronavirus Assistance for American Families Act.” The Florida Republican’s office noted the bill “would provide increased Economic Impact Payments (EIP) to American families by equalizing EIPs per person, regardless of age or dependent status.” Other backers of the bill include U.S. Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.
