Hagerty Statement on Opposing the Partisan, So-Called COVID Relief Bill

March 6, 2021

WASHINGTON—United States Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) today issued the following statement after voting to oppose the Democrats’ hyper-partisan spending package disguised as COVID relief:

“This two trillion dollar pork-filled package is not targeted, not bipartisan, and not transparent. It should have been crafted through regular order within Senate committees. With a trillion dollars still left to be spent from the last COVID package, the last thing Tennesseans deserve is to have their taxpayer dollars wasted, resulting in a sluggish economic recovery and crippling debt on our children and grandchildren.”
