FDAC Joins Special District Coalition on COVID-19 Funding

Fire Districts Association of California (FDAC) joined with the California Special Districts Association and 24 other fire district and special district associations across the country in a letter of support of the Special Districts Provide Essential Services Act (H.R. 7073 and S. 4308). S. 4308 and H.R. 7073 would allow special districts direct access to the Coronavirus Relief Fund (within certain provisions) and establish a federal definition of “special district.”   
 
California’s Congressional delegation, including Congressman John Garamendi who sponsored H.R. 7073, has shown tremendous support of this effort.  We want to thank Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein for their leadership on S. 4308 and Representatives Bera, Brownly, Carbajal, Cisneros, Costa, Cox, Davis, DeSaulnier, Eshoo, Harder, Huffman, Khanna, Lee, Levin, Lowenthal, McNerney, Napolitano, Panetta, Rouda, Speier, Takano and Thompson for their co-sponsorship of H.R. 7073.  

FDAC will continue to update its members on the status of H.R. 7073 and S. 4308.
