Johnson Statement on Being Named to President’s Task Force on Reopening the Economy

BOSSIER CITY, La. – U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) today issued the following statement regarding his appointment by President Trump to the Task Force on Reopening the Economy:

“It is a great honor to be asked by President Trump to serve on the Task Force on Reopening the Economy, and I gladly accepted. The American people have pulled together to slow the spread of COVID-19, demonstrated selflessness beyond belief, and endured incredible sacrifice. As a result, we have begun to turn the corner in our fight against this invisible enemy. While we are not out the woods just yet, we must focus our attention right now on bringing that same unifying spirit to reopening the American economy as soon as possible. Before COVID-19 came to our shores, our economy was as strong as it had ever been – unemployment was at historic lows, wages were on the rise, and businesses were thriving. I wholeheartedly believe that, under President Trump’s leadership, our nation can reclaim that momentum and restore our booming economy. I thank the president for this opportunity, and I look forward to getting to work.”
