Marsha Blackburn Demands Answers on Concerns over President Joe Biden’s Blue State Bailout Funded Trips to Hawaii

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) and Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) are demanding answers about reports that California school officials are considering using COVID-19 relief funding for taxpayer-funded vacations to Hawaii and teacher bonuses.

“We need a full accounting of how taxpayer funds are being utilized to reopen schools,” said Senator Blackburn. “These funds should be used for one purpose – getting children back in class. Instead, the teacher’s unions are forcing schools to remain closed, while officials are doling out bonuses and reportedly planning taxpayer-funded vacations to Hawaii. I’m sure these parents whose children have been learning from home for the past year would enjoy a free trip to Hawaii.”
