INDIANAPOLIS – This week, the Indiana Democratic Party will continue its American Rescue Plan Tour, a statewide campaign to help deliver the good news about President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 relief package and how it’s helping all of Indiana’s 92 counties and its communities put the pandemic firmly in the rearview mirror. More than six counties will also share with Hoosiers how not one Indiana Republican elected official voted to support the Rescue Plan despite the law delivering $5.8 billion in relief to the state, Indiana’s schools receiving $2 billion in aid, and more than $250 million being used to expand broadband internet access across Indiana. 

“The Indiana Democratic Party is delivering for Indiana and for Hoosiers in every one of the state’s 92 counties, regardless of voting history or current political persuasion. We’re showing up and getting to work on behalf of every family and community because solutions matter so much more than tired partisan games,” said Mike Schmuhl, Chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party. “President Joe Biden’s American Rescue Plan is helping Indiana and its families rebuild from COVID-19, and Democrats are ready to push back against Republican misinformation and detail why the right partnerships between our federal and state governments can deliver major successes for Indiana’s future. This is what the American Rescue Plan is doing for the Hoosier State.”

The American Rescue Plan Tour will specify just how the Rescue Plan is providing a direct contribution to all of Indiana’s 92 counties – including this week’s tour stops. Hoosiers can check out the Indiana Democratic Party’s “American Rescue Plan: How It Benefits You” website where voters can find out how the law is helping their families put COVID-19 in the rearview mirror.
