Gardner Votes for $8.3 Billion Coronavirus Preparedness Package

Supplemental funding bill contains more than $9 million for Colorado

Washington, D.C. – Today U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) voted in favor of H.R. 6074, the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, which provides $8.3 billion for the United States to prepare for and respond to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The bill now goes to the President’s desk to be signed into law.

“Since the first reports of COVID-19 in the United States, I have been in close contact with local, state, and federal officials to ensure that Congress serves as a collaborative partner in the U.S. response to the outbreak,” said Senator Gardner. “I want to thank the public health officials in Colorado and across the country for the work they have been doing to make sure we have a 50-state approach to protect the American people from the COVID-19 outbreak. This funding package will provide robust support for current and potential future efforts to contain and combat the spread of COVID-19.”
