As we all desire a safe return to our normal lives, I appreciate congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler’s levelheaded approach to reopening our economy. Jaime recently proposed a solution, alongside Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle, to expedite the reopening of segments of our economy through enhanced testing capacity.
Jaime has been working with a Vancouver-based lab that can perform rapid tests, which would allow employers to quickly screen and isolate any problems and prevent the dreaded “spike” in cases we need to avoid. Jaime has been level-headed, solutions-oriented and most of all, responsive to our community’s needs during this crisis. I commend her leadership.
