Congressman Andy Biggs was asked to join Trump’s congressional task force to reopen the economy in America.

“We need to get the country open before May and June,” he said. “If you want to get the economy zipping along it’s going to take some time.”

The Congressman emphasized that the longer we take to reopen then longer it will take us to get any kind of money back to the economy.

Will the task forces’ efforts be hindered in some states?

Biggs said we would see many states, like Illinois, really struggle because their governors are ruling with a heavy hand. Other places will reopen quickly and set things back on track.

Many state governors believe the federal government should bail out their states. Biggs said that the task force will have to discuss how the federal government will proceed. He said he is not for state bailouts but some of his colleagues believe it could be an answer.
