FreedomWorks Statement on President Biden Signing GOP-led Bill To Terminate COVID-19 Emergency Declaration

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to news that President Biden signed Rep. Paul Gosar’s (AZ-09) bill, which terminates the national emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cesar Ybarra, FreedomWorks Vice President of Policy, commented:

“For the last year and a half, the Biden administration abused its power by continuing to extend the declaration in order to maintain control over certain levers within the federal government. Today, this Administration has finally acknowledged that the pandemic is over.

“Now it’s time for Congress to recoup the billions that were stolen from taxpayers as a means to fund the pandemic response. From the CARES Act and America Rescue Plan Act, to the Inflation Reduction Act, Republicans must work to rescind as much of the unspent dollars from these laws and get our country on a sustainable fiscal path.”
