Maintaining a reliable internet connection, especially for people in our rural communities, is critically important to weathering  #COVID19. Congress needs to play its part in keeping folks connected. My op-ed with  @David Perdue &  @Sen. Kevin Cramer: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/op-eds/covid-19-shows-necessity-of-broadband-access-in-ru...

We closed America to bend the curve + make sure we had adequate medical resources. We accomplished this in many places. Now, America must open smartly, safely and soon. Read more from Chairman  @Sen. John Barrasso in  @Fox News Opinion ↓↓↓↓↓

Conference Chairman @SenJohnBarrasso:

In Wyoming, our commitment has always been to keep our:

✓ Families safe

It’s time for all of us in America to get back in the saddle again. There are long term health consequences of people being unable to work, & we currently have 39 million Americans out of work. For the sake of the health of the American people, we need to reopen the country.

We need to work smart here. Help the people who are desperately in need, try to save as many jobs as possible, begin to open up the states, and get this economy growing again.

The truth that Democrats don’t want you to know, is that yes we CAN do both. We can help out American families & businesses & still be fiscally responsible.

I’m going to fight each day to make sure FL’s taxpayers are protected & we don’t mortgage the next generation’s future.

Chairman @SenJohnBarrasso on @VarneyCo:

It's so critically important that we get this country open and back to work.

It is the best thing we can do for the citizens—their economic health, their physical health, and their mental health.

Long term unemployment has many side effects. That’s why it’s critical the country open & people go back to work. I still favor a pause on spending, but if additional legislation is needed, it must have liability coverage for small business to protect them from unjust lawsuits.

It’s hard to understand how House Democrats think imposing a quarter of a trillion dollar retroactive tax increase on businesses in need of cash will help our economic recovery.

It clearly fails the common-sense test.

Rural America must not be left behind as we work to expand coronavirus testing across the US. These communities are vital to a successful economic restart. This $5M funding will help state officials carry out their plan to reopen Arkansas in a safe manner. https://www.boozman.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?id=AADF37CA-D7BF-4863-B541-0F0A28128D5F
