Gallagher hopes to get state moving again

Recognizing the seriousness of the COVID-19 outbreak does not mean Wisconsin Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher wants the state to stay at a standstill for long. In the last week, the United States Congress passed a $2 trillion stimulus bill to help get the economy moving again while President Donald Trump extended the coronavirus safety guidelines to April 30th.  Speaking before last week’s stimulus vote, Rep. Gallagher said he would like to see a middle of the road approach that observes social distancing and other safety measures while also getting things a little closer to normal.

Some of those ideas outlined in a recent op-ed in the Wisconsin State Journal included more strategic quarantines, surge support to the frontlines fighting the virus, and even having kids do what it takes to make up for lost time in the classroom. We will have additional comments from Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin about the coronavirus on Thursday.
