Wisconsin’s Democratic members of Congress want more federal money to continue testing for the coronavirus.
U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin along with congressmen Mark Pocan and Ron Kind, and Congresswoman Gwen Morre on Friday signed a letter to the president asking for a 100-percent match for the Wisconsin National Guard. The Guard has spent months testing for the virus across the state. Earlier this month the Democrats say the president stopped covering all of the costs of that testing. Wisconsin’s portion of that bill could now be 12 million-dollars. The state has about 300 million in coronavirus stimulus money that could cover those costs, but the Democrats in Congress want to save that money for other things.
