“You have to look at what [ByteDance’s] participation would be, and at a more granular level, you have to look at what would happen with the data from U.S. consumers.
Lamar Alexander reports Democrats Block Bill to Help Americans Go Safely Back to School, College, Child Care and Prepare for Future Pandemics
Lamar Alexander says the only way for Congress to help the American people get through the COVID-19 pandemic is for Democrats and Republicans to work together
Washington, D.C. – Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) Thursday, September 10th said “the only way for Congress to help the American people get through the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic is for Democrats and Republicans to work together” after Democrats blocked a proposal to help Americans go safely back to school, college and child care and prepare for future pandemics from being debated on the Senate floor.
The proposal—Delivering Immediate Relief to America’s Families, Schools and Small Businesses Act—provides $105 billion to help schools re-open and gives parents more choices of schools for their children, $15 billion to provide more child care for working parents, $16 billion for states to conduct more testing and contact tracing, $31 billion for tests, treatments, and vaccines development.
Lamar Alexander says Senate Republican Proposal Will Help Americans Go Safely Back to School, College, Child Care, and Prepare for Future Pandemics
Washington, D.C. – Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said a new Republican proposal to respond to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic will “help Americans go safely back to school, college and child care and prepare for future pandemics.”
The Delivering Immediate Relief to America’s Families, Schools and Small Businesses Act “provides $105 billion to help schools re-open and gives parents more choices of schools for their children, $15 billion to provide more child care for working parents, $16 billion for states to conduct more testing and contact tracing, $31 billion for tests, treatments, and vaccines development. It also provides for sustained funding to prepare for future pandemics.”
Washington, D.C. – “The United States expects to have four coronavirus candidate vaccines in large-scale clinical trials by the middle of September, a remarkable timeline considering the SARS-CoV-2 virus was only discovered in December,” Elizabeth Weise and Karen Weintraub write. “We feel we are absolutely on track–if not a little bit ahead–in terms of our overall objective,” HHS Deputy Chief of Staff Paul Mango said.
Maryville, TN – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said that the Tennessee Valley Authority’s (TVA) decision to provide a two and one half percent “Pandemic Relief Credit” to wholesale customers, in effect lowering electric rates by two and one half percent, “is a lesson for California and its poor energy policy decisions.”
He said Californians are suffering electricity blackouts as electricity prices skyrocket, while TVA cuts rates and provides 99.9 percent reliability.
“There’s a lesson here,” Senator Alexander said. “California has closed its zero emission nuclear plants, closed low emission gas plants and relied on windmills and imported power from coal plants.”
Washington, D.C. – PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Okay. Thank you very much, everybody. So we have some very interesting news. Kevin Clinesmith, a corrupt FBI attorney who falsified FISA warrants in James Comey’s very corrupt FBI, is expected to plead guilty.
You probably heard that. It just came out. So that’s just the beginning, I would imagine, because what happened should never happen again. So, he is pleading guilty. Terrible thing. Terrible thing. The fact is they spied on my campaign and they got caught. And you’ll be hearing more.
Washington, D.C. – At the outset, President Donald Trump took action to stop travel from China to stem the spread to the United States as long as possible.

Nashville, TN – United States Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) has released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s executive orders to provide COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic relief:
“The president is doing all he can to help workers, students and renters, but Congress is the one who should be acting. Democrats should stop blocking common sense proposals to help students going back to school and college and parents going back to work who need child care.”
Nashville, TN – Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the Democratic white paper on COVID-19 Coronavirus vaccines:
“The United States is developing safe and effective vaccines for a new virus faster than at any other time in our history. Democrats and Republicans should be working together to help further accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of new tests, treatments and vaccines, and I look forward to discussing these and other proposals with my colleagues.”
Maryville, TN – Senate health committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the Democratic staff report on COVID-19 diagnostic testing:
“Blaming President Donald Trump for a problem that four Presidents and several Congresses have tried to solve for twenty years does not make Americans safer. Instead of pointing fingers, Democrats and Republicans should be working together. Already the United States is testing twice as many people as any other country and is developing new vaccines faster than at any time in our history.”
