Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on Brian Kemp’s Use of American Rescue Plan Funding He Opposed

September 27, 2021

Today, following Brian Kemp’s announcement that funding from President Biden and Democrats’ American Rescue Plan will be used to provide bonuses for first responders, after previously criticizing the relief package and even urging Georgia’s senators to vote against it, the Democratic Party of Georgia released the following statement:

“We’re glad to see Brian Kemp has finally come around to supporting President Biden’s American Rescue Plan after staunchly opposing this critical relief for working Georgians and law enforcement. If Kemp or any of Georgia’s Republican Senate candidates had their way, Georgia would not be seeing a dime of this essential funding for our first responders. These bonuses are thanks exclusively to the President and Georgia Democrats, who passed the COVID-19 relief package without a single Georgia Republican vote,” said Rhyan Lake, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia.
