Press Release

Representative Sharice Davids issued the following statement on the shortage of medical supplies needed to fight the coronavirus and keep frontline workers and their patients safe in Kansas:


“Kansas still doesn't have the supplies we need to tackle this public health crisis. It's unacceptable that we rank 50th among other states in per capita testing. And it's unacceptable that our calls to FEMA for more supplies aren't being met.


“Among other measures, the president needs to fully invoke the Defense Production Act to rapidly produce supplies and get them into the hands of our frontline workers. My team is working every day to help companies that want to donate or produce supplies and secure resources to our state.”
