Luetkemeyer Named to President Trump’s Opening Up America Again Congressional Group

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, President Donald Trump named Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) to his Opening Up America Again Congressional Group.

“It is an honor to be a member of President Trump’s Opening Up America Again Congressional Group. The Administration and our medical community have worked tirelessly to stop the spread of COVID-19 and save lives, and the appreciation we feel for our medical professionals and first responders who put their lives on the line everyday cannot be overstated. As we continue taking measures to keep ourselves healthy, we are also faced with the dangers of a crippled economy that is threatening the livelihoods of millions of families across Missouri and the entire country. It is critical that we take the necessary steps to put Americans on the path back to economic success while maintaining our dedication to public health. I stand ready to work alongside the President as he leads the United States through one of the most difficult periods in our history.”
