Our #1 Priority: Extending PSP

Our #1 Priority: Extending PSP

November 13 — Our number one priority is extending the Payroll Support Program. Chairman DeFazio’s office and Chairman Wicker’s office yesterday spoke at the Washington D.C. AeroClub to convey that extending PSP is a top priority. This includes recalling and restoring anyone currently on furlough.

Both the House and the Senate will return to Washington, D.C. next week. President-Elect Biden spoke with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer yesterday. He expressed the urgent need for Congress to come together in the lame duck session on a bipartisan basis to pass a COVID-19 relief bill to fight the pandemic and get relief to working families (read: aviation workers).

Rededicate your efforts to making three calls a day and tweeting Congress.

Call Congress: Extend PSP

"Hello, I am a constituent calling to tell my (Senator/Representative) that aviation workers are out of time. Furloughs have begun and we only have short time to reverse course. We need relief and an extension of the Payroll Support Program TODAY. Without an extension of this successful jobs program, there is no backstop for layoffs. This is just the start.
