WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement on the announcement that the Senate will vote on a targeted coronavirus relief bill.
“Republicans are offering targeted relief for those hardest hit by the virus. We have funding for schools to safely open. We’ve focused the Paycheck Protection Program on the small businesses most in need. Most importantly, we are fighting to put this disease behind us by continuing to respond to needs in testing, treatments, and the race for a vaccine.
“We’d welcome Democrats to work with us and govern. The American people deserve and need our help.”
