TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona Senators Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema have been named to President Trump's bipartisan congressional task force to reopen America.
The senators say they will take the concerns of Arizonans and put forward the best possible solution to quicky recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The coronavirus pandemic has given way to unprecedented challenges unlike any we have seen in our nation’s history. Americans have been asked to stay home and not work in order to save lives and that gravely impacted the livelihoods of so many,” McSally said. “But I am confident America and Arizona will recover from this extraordinary time stronger than ever."
Honored to be named to @POTUS's bipartisan task force to plan our country’s path forward. I'll take AZ concerns & ideas straight to the task force to inform a strong economic recovery that benefits Arizona’s families and businesses while prioritizing the safety of all citizens.— Martha McSally (@SenMcSallyAZ) April 16, 2020
“I will work with anyone to support Arizona’s state and local leaders, ensure our communities adhere to scientific best practices to address our current health emergency, and provide employers the resources to quickly recover and get Americans back to work once the immediate crisis has passed,” said Sinema.
I am happy to serve on the bipartisan White House task force focused on economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. We’ll work with anyone to provide support for AZ state and local leaders. https://t.co/NTYDpDnXwM— Kyrsten Sinema (@SenatorSinema) April 16, 2020
On Wednesday, during a press conference, President Trump says that data indicates that the United States is "past the peak" of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The battle continues, but the data suggests that nationwide, we have passed the peak on new cases. Hopefully that will continue and we will continue to make great progress,” said Trump.
