Since COVID-19 first landed on American soil, Fred has been leading the fight to defeat it and rushing assistance to southwest Michigan families and small businesses.
Back in March, Congress passed and Fred strongly supported the CARES Act that established the Paycheck Protection Program to support millions of small business jobs across the nation, enhanced unemployment benefits, distributed stimulus checks to individuals and families, and provided emergency funding for our hospitals, health care workers, and greater COVID-19 testing.
Fred has also led the charge to secure personal protective equipment (PPE) for our brave front-line workers who are working day and night to put an end to this vicious virus. In addition, he has worked with several private companies to get thousands of masks, gloves, gowns, and other medical supplies to hospitals and health centers in Southwest Michigan.
Expanded COVID testing is also a top priority for Fred, and he has fought to get testing supplies to Michigan so that we can begin to safely reopen our country.
Fred will continue his fight to protect the health and safety of all Michiganders, restore our way of life, and defeat this virus.
