Two leading Republican senators introduced legislation Monday that would give airlines and ground contractors another $28 billion in payroll support to avert tens of thousands of layoffs planned for the beginning of October.
There is broad bipartisan support in Congress for providing more government help to the airlines, which continue to struggle as fewer people travel during the pandemic.
The new bill’s sponsors, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), chairman of the Commerce Committee, which oversees aviation, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who leads the transportation funding subcommittee, said their bill would protect workers’ jobs until March 31 and ensure airline service continues to communities across the country.
