Frontline Worker Pay Working Group

The Frontline Worker Pay Working Group was established to make recommendations to the legislature on how to disburse $250,000,000 in direct financial support to frontline workers. In developing its recommendation, the working group must consider factors including a frontline worker's increased financial burden and increased risk of virus exposure due to the nature of their work.

The working group must submit proposed legislative language implementing its recommendations to the governor, speaker of the house, and senate majority leader by September 6, 2021. The working group expires upon submission of the proposed legislation.
