  • Comment Letters

To: Leader McConnell, Speaker Pelosi, Leader Schumer, and Leader McCarthy

Subject: We, the nation’s public water sector, write to alert you to an urgent issue that directly affects all state and local government employees.

Letter excerpt:

H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, expands paid sick leave and family medical leave benefits for all public sector employees who are affected by the coronavirus crisis. While we support this provision, with appropriate limitations to ensure that certain critical operational water system staff are available at to maintain water service, the enacted legislation includes a glaring flaw that will place a strain on taxpayers across the country.
