Pelosi made history again in January 2019 when she regained her position second-in-line to the presidency – the first person to do so in more than six decades.  Speaker Pelosi is the chief architect of generation-defining legislation under two Democratic administrations, including the Affordable Care Act and the American Rescue Plan.

Under the Biden-Harris Administration, Speaker Pelosi led the House in crafting and enacting the American Rescue Plan.  This life-saving legislation turned the tide of the pandemic: getting vaccines into hundreds of millions of Americans’ arms, delivering direct assistance to families in need, creating millions of new jobs, supporting teachers, police officers, firefighters, transit workers and other frontline heroes, and returning children safely to schools.
