DRIVE is the Teamsters National Political Action Committee. Because of the extra funds sent to Pennsylvania, the International and PA Locals, including Teamsters Local 502:CASA, were able to elect Joe Biden as President of the United States and Kamala Harris as Vice President. Plus, we elected two Democratic Senators in the state of Georgia. With the Senate at 50-50, we now had V.P. Harris as the tiebreaker. Then the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan was passed in the U.S. Congress by a 50-49 vote. Pennsylvania Education will now receive over $2 billion, with at least $900 million coming to SDP.  DRIVE funds helped pave the way.
