Bipartisan House Group Has Reopening Plan

Problem Solvers Caucus focuses on mass testing.

A bipartisan group of 50 members of the House of Representatives has crafted a plan on what is needed to reopen the economy safely and help businesses recover from their mandatory shutdowns.

The plan from the Problem Solvers Caucus outlines specific health, economic recovery and long-term stimulus plans that the group wants Congress and President Trump to embrace as the nation tries to emerge from weeks of quarantines and growing mass layoffs.

”The bottom line is people I think are eager for a checklist. They want to understand what we think it takes to get everything moving again,” said Representative Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, cochairman of the group.

They are planning to unveil their “Back to Work” checklist, that “shows that if you’re sincere and you want to put partisan politics aside… you can actually roll up your sleeves and you can find some common ground that makes a lot of good common sense,” said Representative Tom Reed of New York, the other cochairman of the caucus.

Gottheimer said, “The overall point is that we need to have testing. It’s critical to be able to fully reopen.”

Reed summarized, “What this proposal is doing is really trying to lay some groundwork. We need to do a better job of looking over the horizon and around the corners. And I’ll tell you, we’ve learned so much over the last four weeks.”
