U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Moments ago, U.S. Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis Chairman James Clyburn (D-SC) calling on him to rescind his partisan attacks on coronavirus response efforts in Tennessee and in three other states led by Republican governors.

Representative Green said, “I am writing to you expressing my severe concern over your letters to four states led by Republican governors, including my home state Governor Bill Lee of Tennessee. The White House Coronavirus Task Force report has 21 states listed as being ‘in the red zone.’ Yet, for some reason, only four of these states, all with Republican governors, were on the receiving end of your letter.”
