WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) fought to secure a robust COVID-19 relief package that will deliver more than $285 million in state and local funding to Washington’s Seventh Congressional District and nearly $7 billion to communities throughout the Evergreen State. Additionally, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 includes more than $437 million for King County and more than $159 million for Snohomish County.
