Senator Roger Wicker backs COVID-19 relief package

Senator Roger Wicker is supporting the COVID-19 relief package as Congress approves new aid and several Wicker-led bills.

This past week, President Trump signed a new COVID-19 relief bill paired with legislation to fund the government through the end of fiscal year 2021.

The government funding package included additional measures that will benefit Mississippi.

Wicker says he helped guarantee support for new broadband data maps, which will lead to more broadband development in unserved areas.

Lawmakers also passed a priority in the Water Resources Development Act which could lead to more investment in Mississippi seaports like the ports of Gulfport and Pascagoula and the harbors in Biloxi, Port Bienville, and Bay St. Louis.
