Sen. Cory Gardner and opponent John Hickenlooper discuss COVID-19 relief
WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - Colorado Senate candidate John Hickenlooper (D) has called for the Senate to return from recess early to continue working on COVID-19 relief. Hickenlooper’s opponent, incumbent Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), said he is continuing to work on new relief bills while in his home state.
Hickenlooper’s concerns include extending unemployment benefits, providing more protective equipment to frontline workers and securing further funding for tests and localities in need.
Gardner recently introduced the TEST Act alongside a bipartisan group of senators. The bill would strengthen diagnostic testing abilities in the case of a future nationwide pandemic. He also introduced the Paycheck Protection Program Extension and Modification Act to extend relief for businesses and allow for more loans through the year.
