Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05) offered the following statement on coronavirus supplemental funding:

“Last week, I voted for $8 billion in supplemental funding to fight the coronavirus. Yesterday, President Trump declared a national emergency, freeing up $50 billion in order to address this crisis. Early this morning, the full text of H.R. 6201 was presented to House members with less than 30 minutes to review 100-plus pages of bill text. We do not know the full cost of this legislation. I am not a fan of passing bills to find out what is in them. I hope the United States Senate is able to review and address the issues with this bill on Monday. We must deal with this outbreak in a measured and responsible way.”
