I will be hosting another live Telephone Town Hall tomorrow, May 21, 2020 at 11:00am CT to provide an update on the federal response to COVID-19 along with resources for business owners and employees. Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) Executive Director Ed Serna will be joining us to provide insight on Texas-specific unemployment resources.
Responding to COVID-19 and reopening our economy requires a bipartisan, measured response. Instead of bringing the House back to Washington D.C. over the last few weeks to work on legislation to help move our nation forward, Speaker Pelosi and Democrats introduced a $3 trillion spending bill that even the media knew wouldn't become law.
As we begin taking steps to gradually and safely reopen our economy, I was grateful for the opportunity this week to visit with business owners, first responders and health care providers in the 25th District.
As we continue navigating these uncertain times, it's important to remember that the small steps we are taking right now are helping to flatten the impact of the coronavirus in our communities down the road. I want to take a moment to thank all of our 25th District front line workers who are protecting our families and keeping food on our tables.
Small businesses are the heartbeat of the American economy, and they are suffering right now at no fault of their own.
We all share responsibility in helping slow the spread of COVID-19. Even if you're young, your actions can still put others at risk, which is why it's vital that we follow instructions from health officials to stay home unless absolutely necessary.
While we are facing a unique time of uncertainty, we are also a nation uniquely gifted to rise up when tested.
To discuss how each of us can help flatten the curve and hear the latest on Congress' response to the outbreak, I will be hosting another live Telephone Town Hall tomorrow, March 25th at 11:00am CT.
