March 18 - Contact Your Senator About H.R. 6201

The Water and Sewer Distributors of America (WASDA) has issued an ACTION ALERT to our members to contact your respective Senators to improve the Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201) for construction and tell them how critical the impact of this bill will be to small business and our industry. Please contact your Senator immediately as they may be voting on this bill at any moment and the voices of the water and wastewater industry need to be heard. You are able to learn more about H.R. 6201, HERE.
You can find your senator, HERE.
Below is a sample letter that you can copy and paste into an email:
The Water and Sewer Distributors of America represents water and sewer distributors and manufacturers, which collectively represent hundreds of thousands of employees.
As we're faced with this national emergency, any legislation should prioritize combatting the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) threat while focusing on the immediate threat to personal safety and well-being of workers across the country.
As written, HR 6201 requires businesses with 500 and fewer employees to provide more than 10 weeks of paid leave, presume liquidity and a tolerance for debt that simply does not exist in the industry. This mandate will restrict health benefits, and as a result, shut down small businesses.
We urge you to consider the severe impact that small and midsize businesses are facing during this global pandemic and enact policies that will support our businesses and economy through this crisis.
