Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (R-Ga.) today applauded President Trump's decision to declare a national emergency and take other measures to address the coronavirus pandemic. President Trump announced this will open up billions of dollars for state and local response efforts. 

"President Trump made the right decision to declare a national emergency today," said Carter."President Trump and the administration are taking decisive and necessary action to address the coronavirus pandemic. The national emergency declaration will free up billions of dollars for those on the frontlines of the virus on the ground. He also announced he will be taking action to give health care providers more flexibility, promote the use of tele-health, improve testing with public-private partnerships, and more. The coronavirus is an aggressive virus, and we must respond aggressively for the health of Americans and the health of our economy."
