“Specifically, the legislation would require the president to use the Defense Production Act (DPA) to mobilize manufacturers and resources needed to produce the medical supplies necessary to quickly distribute a future COVID-19 vaccine,” Crist’s office noted.
Crist, who sits on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee, said that DOJ is sending a $349,895 grant to Goodwill Industries to help the victims at a local level.

Crist, who sits on the U.S. House Appropriations Committee, said the funds will help boost the community.
With all votes in, Luna won the Republican primary in this Pinellas County district with 36 percent of the vote.
On Monday, conservative leader Anna Paulina Luna ramped up her campaign for the Republican nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla.
