Governor Kim Reynolds Addresses Critics Who Say That Closing Small Businesses is an Overreaction

Iowa’s governor grew emotional today when addressing claims that the threat of COVID-19 is being overblown. Governor Kim Reynolds says she’s well aware of those claims.

Reynolds was asked this afternoon during her daily news conference about critics who say business closures are an over-reaction. Reynolds says she has had to make some hard decisions in the midst of a pandemic.

Reynolds says these orders are a necessity.

Reynolds says she’s hoping the FEDERAL stimulus package that just passed congress this afternoon will help many Iowans get through these really tough times. Most every American will get a 12-hundred dollar check and unemployment benefits will be expanded.
