Gallagher supports phased-in reopening plan

U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher hopes Governor Tony Evers reconsiders his plan to extend the state’s Safer at Home order until May 26th. Shortly after Governor Evers made his announcement, President Donald Trump announced his three-phase approach to reopening the country as it continues to handle the COVID-19 pandemic. At the governors’ discretion, President Trump’s plan would slowly allow large venues like restaurants and churches to reach their capacity, non-essential travel to resume, and public interactions to begin provided the states reach certain benchmarks. Rep. Gallagher calls it a common sense, bottom-up approach.

He encourages Governor Evers to create a bipartisan task force with leaders in Wisconsin to develop a plan to reopen the state slowly and safely, not just follow the path of other governors in the region. Rep. Gallagher also pointed out that without an increase in testing, it will be tough to track down where and how the disease is spreading. After contacting her offices Friday, we hope to share Senator Tammy Baldwin’s thoughts about the country’s COVID-19 response next week.
