WASHINGTON, D.C. — Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 6201, the Coronavirus Response Act.

“Congress worked with President Trump to take decisive action that will expedite testing for the Coronavirus and help American families ensure that they can still pay their bills while times are tough.

“The critical resources in this legislation will help American workers and families in need. Time is precious and lives are on the line. We have the world’s greatest health care system, the most innovative biotech industry, and the hottest economy in the world. America has made it through far worse crises than this. America will make it through this crisis as well, working together to keep families safe.”
