Senator Moran visits NE KS
09/18/2020

(KAIR)--US Senator Jerry Moran visited northeast Kansas Thursday, with stops in Atchison and Holton.

While in Atchison, the Republican Senator spoke with the Atchison Rotary club about a number of topics, including the federal government’s ongoing Covid-19 response and how it relates to the Kansas economy.

“I’m not intending to vote for some major muli-trillion-dollar bill again. I think that we don’t have the capability of solving all the problems with another government program or with a series of government programs. There’s a few things that I think that we should do, and I want to make sure I’m explaining that to Kansans and getting there feedback.”

Moran says he would like to see a bill targeted more toward aiding health care worker.

“The things that I’m looking for, the things I would be supportive of, is more effort on personal protection equipment to make sure our hospitals, our first responders, our nursing homes, everybody has the protection that they need to do their jobs, because the goal here is to get people to work. The goal here is getting students back in the classroom, in the building, and that means they need the tools to be safe.”

Moran says it’s not likely that another phase of funding, or relief package, will get approved any time soon.

“Unfortunately, we’re in that circumstance now in which the politics, I think, of November now kicks in, and people are not evaluating what they think is the right policy, but what does it mean to them, their cadidates, or their party, going into November’s election.”

Regarding November’s Senate race in Kansas, Moran says he is supporting Republican Representative Roger Marshall, who is running against Democrat Barbara Bollier.

Earlier this week, former Republican U.S. Senator Nancy Kassabaum announced that she would be supporting Bollier.
