May 13, 2020
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL) released the following statement on Governor DeSantis current phased reopening of Florida’s economy:

"No one could have foreseen the extent or duration to which the coronavirus would shut down our economy. The government can’t print enough money to fix the economy nor can the American people afford it.  The only way to recover from this is to open up the economy as quickly and safely as possible.  Governor DeSantis’s plan to reopen Florida’s economy in phases is the right approach.  I commend him for his leadership in forming The Safe, Smart, Step-By-Step Plan for Florida’s Recovery task force and for their dedication to the health and wellbeing of all Floridians. It is important that we safely reopen our economy, as quickly as possible so everyone can safely return to work, provide for their families, and breathe life into their businesses that are struggling to survive.”
