Press Release

Representative Sharice Davids issued the following statement on House passage of a coronavirus emergency response supplemental funding bill:

“It’s essential that we have a coordinated, well-resourced government response to the coronavirus to keep Kansas communities safe. That’s why I worked with my House colleagues to quickly pass a strong, bipartisan funding package that addresses the scale and severity of this public health crisis.

“This package will fully fund a robust response to coronavirus, including vaccine and treatment development, support for state, local and tribal governments – which are our first line of defense – and assistance for affected small businesses. Importantly, it helps to prevent price-gouging and ensures that vaccines and treatments for coronavirus are affordable and accessible.

“This is not about partisan politics – this is about the safety of the American people. We must come together and quickly enact this legislation.”
