McMorris Rodgers Statement on Governor Inslee’s Denial of Spokane County Variance
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Eastern Washington Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement after Governor Jay Inslee denied Spokane Counties’ request to move to phase II of reopening.
“Spokane County is united to reopen. Governor Inslee’s decision disregards local health expertise and reason. He should listen to leaders on the ground—after all that’s why counties exist. We trusted his ‘Stay Home, Stay Healthy’ order to flatten the curve in Eastern Washington. Now, it’s time for him to trust us so we can start to reverse the hardship, fear, anxiety, and loss. Let’s trust the science and work together to safely reopen Spokane,” said McMorris Rodgers.
This morning, Cathy also joined Fox News’s America’s Newsroom where she talked about the need for Governor Inslee to take a regional and reasonable approach to get our economy open again. In case you missed it, you can watch that clip here
