House sponsors of H.R. 7642 call on Congressional leadership to include CERTS in relief package
 
 
Representatives Darin LaHood, Albio Sires, Don Young, and Alan Lowenthal today called on the Congressional leadership to ensure that $10 billion in economic relief for the motorcoach industry is included in any relief package. They stressed the bipartisan support for H.R. 7642.
 
The letter pointed out that fact that our industry's needs have gone unaddressed in prior measures. "Unfortunately, none of the enacted economic relief packages in response to COVID-19 to date included provisions addressing these transportation service providers." the letter states. "While many transportation industries, such as Amtrak, public transit, airlines, and airports, were specifically provided for in the CARES Act, these industries were noticeably left out. We hope to rectify that oversight in this upcoming relief package."

 

HOUSE: The CERTS Act has been introduced as H.R. 7642

More Than 1 Million Masks Made Available for Motorcoach Industry Drivers & Front-Line Employees as Industry Restarts

The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), alongside the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), has been working with states, industries, and stakeholders to ensure that transportation workers receive the support they need. The cloth facial coverings secured by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be sent out over the next 2 weeks through the U.S. Postal Service to a variety of state motorcoach association locations to assist in making masks widely available for delivery or pick up.

The masks are intended for use by motorcoach drivers, mechanics, support personnel and other front line employees in your business. They are NOT for distribution to passengers.

“Transportation workers are on the frontlines of keeping our transportation systems operational during this public health emergency and their wellbeing and safety is paramount,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

A list of distribution points is available here. 

For those motorcoach operators not located near any of the distribution points listed on the link above or if any of those points get over-subscribed, you can request additional masks from UMA, ABA, or Trailways utilizing the link below:
