As with all of my work in Congress, I reach across the aisle to forge bipartisan support for consensus driven policy.
I will continue to work with my colleagues to address the needs and challenges we are facing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Congress' attention needs to remain on the recovery of our health and economy as these challenges are addressed.
