I’m excited to celebrate the inauguration of @JoeBiden as the 46th President of the United States. I look forward to working with him on the many challenges that face our country and enacting effective clean energy policies to address the climate crisis. cleanenergyforbiden.com/ball

It is good news that the president has signed the relief bill. But his delayed action cost Washingtonians a week of PUA benefits. The Pandemic Relief Payments we announced today will fill that gap. I am pleased we can offer this vital help to 95,000 people in our state.

.@ESDwaWorks will be issuing this state benefit later this week. This does not solve all the problems caused by the president’s inaction — we are doing what we can, but we simply do not have the ability to replace all of the unemployment supports in the relief package.

We are providing a bridge for some Washingtonians until the federal government finally acts. In our state, we prepared for the possibility of a lapse in benefits and in anticipating it, we developed a plan for a one-time payment for those who have been receiving PUA benefits.

The president had until midnight last night to sign the sweeping relief bill to avert a lapse in PUA benefits. He chose not to act and allowed much-needed unemployment benefits to lapse for struggling workers and families.

I will be extending Washington state’s eviction moratorium through March 31, 2021. We are still finalizing the details, but I know people need certainty that an extension is coming. Additional information will be announced in the next week.

I know it’s difficult, especially during the holidays, to not gather with those you love. But the risks are just too high. Next year’s celebrations will be all the better if everyone we love is still here to celebrate with us. columbian.com/news/2020/dec/…

But this can only be considered a down-payment. Much more relief is needed. I’ll keep working with the next Congress and administration to address the full scope of aid needed — for WA’s families, businesses and communities. Our work is not done.

However, this fight isn’t over. Every choice we make can help more people live to see the end of this destructive pandemic. We must continue to mask up, maintain physical distancing, avoid gathering and work together to defeat COVID-19. governor.wa.gov/news-media/i…
