H. R. 6643, Supporting State and Local Leaders Act.

Summary: To allow tax credits to Federal, State, and local governments for required paid sick leave and required paid family and medical leave. (Cosponsors)

ANGIE CRAIG’S POSITION:  Representative Craig Cosponsored the bill on 04/28/20.

STATUS: Introduced 04/28/20 by Rep. Schneider, Bradley Scott [D-IL-10].


  • “Our states and local communities are leaders in our fight against the coronavirus, and they are being stretched thin on the frontlines of this crisis. Congress has to do more to support them during this pandemic. Allowing public employers like state and local governments and public schools, utilities, and transit agencies to access the same payroll tax credits available to private businesses is a straightforward and bipartisan way to help our communities during this time of need,” said Schneider.
