|BELLEVUE – Chairman Heimlich released the following statement after Governor Inslee’s latest press conference regarding his coronavirus response.|
“While Governor Inslee finally put forth a plan that begins to address future concerns, his plan does not address the concerns of Washingtonians right now.
Families are concerned right now, businesses are concerned right now, and we need a plan that starts safely right now – not one that could slowly begin over the weeks and months ahead. We are seeing states like Colorado, and now California, begin to lift their stay at home orders yet Governor Inslee refuses to trust Washingtonians to act responsibly.
It’s disappointing that Governor Inslee continues to put businesses and families on the fast track to bankruptcy and poverty. We need to have faith in our fellow Washingtonians and trust them to begin operating their businesses and lives with the same faith we’ve had in grocery stores and big-box stores.”
