President Trump invites Sen. Whitehouse to join congressional panel on reopening economy

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WLNE) – Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse says he has accepted President Trump’s invitation to serve on a ‘bipartisan panel’ with other members of Congress which will determine guidelines for reopening the American economy.

“I hope this panel will be a good-faith bipartisan effort informed by science and best practice,” Sen. Whitehouse said in a statement. “Ignoring public health experts and governors to prematurely end stay-at-home order would lead to more infections and could further hurt our economy.”
