DeWine, Governors Urge Passing of Emergency Coronavirus Measure(COLUMBUS, Ohio)—Ohio Governor Mike DeWine joined 38 governors in sending a letter to Congressional leaders in support of the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act (H.R. 6074).
“As the nation’s governors, the health and well-being of our residents is our primary concern,” the governors wrote in the letter. “It is imperative that we have adequate resources and funding to respond to this rapidly developing public health emergency.”
The letter praised the House of Representatives for passing the bill and urged the Senate to pass it quickly.
“We appreciate the state-federal coordination on the response thus far and look forward to working with both the Administration and Congress as the nation tackles this public health threat,” the governors continued.
