WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman David Schweikert (AZ-06) led a letter with colleagues in the Arizona delegation requesting an immediate influx of federal resources to help the state continue to combat the coronavirus through increased testing, personal protective equipment (PPE), staffing support, and emergency funding for local initiatives to respond to and mitigate further spread of COVID-19.
“It is critical that we continue to provide access to testing, personal protective equipment (PPE), and other resources for our state to fight this virus. We are hearing from constituents each day about the long wait times for test results and from local healthcare providers in need of additional PPE. I will continue working with my Arizona colleagues to ensure our constituents and local governments are receiving the resources they need to defeat this virus. I thank both FEMA and HHS for their hard work to support states throughout this pandemic. We must continue our work to ensure all Arizonans can stay healthy and safe.”
Senator Sinema (D-AZ), Congressman Raul Grijalva (AZ-03), Congressman Ruben Gallego (AZ-07), and Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick (AZ-01) joined in sending the letter.
