Take Action ALL DAY to #ExtendPSP

Take Action ALL DAY to #ExtendPSP

September 30, 2020 at 9:20am ET

We have until MIDNIGHT tonight before the Payroll Support Program (PSP) expires. We pushed Congress to talks over a full relief bill, including our PSP Extension. Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are set to continue talks on an overall relief deal this morning.

Last night, Treasury endorsed an extension of the Payroll Support Program saying: “We call on Congress to extend the Payroll Support Program so we can continue to support aviation industry workers as our economy reopens and we continue on the path to recovery,” said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.

Everyone agrees. Get it done!

Our deadline is driving this deal. Call and tweet ALL DAY today!

Call Congress

Make at least three calls today. One to your Representative and two to your Senators.

SENATE: 888-848-4824
HOUSE: 888-907-9365

"Hello, I am a constituent calling to tell my (Senator/Representative) that aviation workers need a relief package before October 1 to stop mass job loss and cuts to small airports that also hurts other Americans who count on air service to get their medicines in the mail. Both parties and the White House are on record with overwhelming support for an extension to the Payroll Support Program for essential workers and to keep service in place to small communities. But words of support won’t keep us flying or help us pay our bills. We need action TODAY. Cosponsor H.R. 8345/S.4634 to save our jobs! At midnight, we’re out of work and millions are hurting without this relief! Keep us connected to our jobs, paychecks, & healthcare. We are counting on you. Thank you.”
