Senator Tina Smith to Introduce Bipartisan Contact Tracing & Testing Bill
By Mark Askelson email@example.com (7/30/20)
Washington, DC -- United State Senator Tina Smith is working on bipartisan legislature to increase testing capabilities and provide funding to hire more personnel to conducting tracing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Senator Smith has teamed up with Republic Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana for the bill, which she says will help with the backlog of testing and contact tracing.
Senator Smith notes that its not acceptable for Minnesotans or anyone to have to be locked up inside their home for up to a week or longer to wait for their test results.
Little progress has been made in regards to the second stimulus bill, but Senator Smith remains hopeful to provide some additional relief during the pandemic.
That’s US Senator Tina Smith.
