The House passed the American Rescue Plan with the Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021. Now, we need to make sure the Senate finishes the job.
Call your Senators and demand that they vote to secure our pensions and pass critical relief for all working people. You will either reach a staff member or be asked to leave a voicemail.
What to say:
“My name is _____ and I live in [City, State].
As a professional musician and active performing member of the American Federation of Musicians, I’m calling on you as my elected Senator in support of the Butch Lewis Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act of 2021, and ask you to vote favorably for pension relief language to be included in the upcoming budget reconciliation package. Please support this bill’s inclusion and passage in the COVID-19 relief package.
Protect our retirement and the retirement of tens of thousands of our fellow musicians.”
