Provo, UTToday, Representative John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement calling for the reopening of the House of Representatives. He argues the need to be back in session while taking all necessary precautions:

“Over the last few months my staff and I have been educating businesses impacted by COVID-19 on resources to ease their burdens, coordinating the return of American citizens safely from foreign countries, keeping constituents and government officials informed, and introducing and cosponsoring bills,” said Curtis. “However, the House needs to return to Washington—taking precautions such as masks, social distancing, and handwashing—to make any real, bipartisan progress on the plethora of bills to help the American people that I and others have introduced. Millions of hard-working Americans are safely working through this pandemic, certainly, Congress with its abundance of resources should be as well. You elected me to be your voice in Washington, and I urge House Democratic leadership to swiftly bring us back so we can work in our full capacity to help the American people.”
