U.S. Sen. Martha McSally pointed to manufacturing as model for reopening nation. The industries that have remained in operation during the coronavirus outbreak could be a shining light on how to get the rest of the nation back to work, of Arizona said Friday.
“We have a lot of defense companies in Arizona, manufacturing, who are working. … They’re using protective equipment, protective gear and safe practices. What are we learning from them?” McSally said on KTAR 92.3 FM’s Arizona’s Morning News.
McSally is one of three Arizona lawmakers chosen for President Donald Trump’s bipartisan congressional economic recovery task force. She joined Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and fellow Republican Rep. Andy Biggs on the list.
Arizona Democrat Kelly sees positives in Trump’s plan to reopen economy
U.S. Senate hopeful Mark Kelly sees positives in the phased plan President Donald Trump released Thursday for reopening the country’s economy during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Democrat told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Gaydos and Chad on Friday that Trump’s plan is measured and follows data.
Trump on Thursday called the 3-part plan “a phased and deliberate approach” to recovering from the economic pain of the pandemic.
“Well, I think there are some positive things there,” Kelly said. “Certainly an approach that’s gradual and based on real metrics is important.”
Kelly also praised the plan’s detail in recognizing the differing impact the virus has had on specific regions and even large metros areas throughout the country.
