Darren Soto Helps Get the ‘Strengthening America’s Strategic National Stockpile Act’ Through the House
Soto was an original cosponsor of U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin’s, D-Mich., “Strengthening America’s Strategic National Stockpile Act” to help “begin reducing America’s dependence on foreign sources of critical medical supplies the country needs to fight COVID-19, boost domestic manufacturing to make those supplies here in America, and make much-needed improvements and updates to America’s Strategic National Stockpile (SNS).”
On Thursday, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., released a list of provisions in the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act” that, his office insisted, “will be critical to the state of Florida during the coronavirus pandemic.”
In the letter, which was led by U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., the members highlighted the need for these resources to be delivered within the next 48 hours and asked for the request to be fulfilled immediately so the Florida government could continue working diligently to combat coronavirus.
