Chairwoman Johnson Applauds President Biden’s First Day of Action

(Washington, DC) – Yesterday, following the inaugural events, President Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders on a range of issues, including COVID-19 response, climate change and the environment, and economic relief. The Biden Administration also released their National Action Plan for dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic earlier today. 

Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX) made the following statement.

“I would like to congratulate President Biden and Vice-President Harris on their inauguration into office. Yesterday’s events displayed a commitment to healing the deep wounds and divisions the American people have been struggling with and to addressing the major challenges we face as a nation. The pace that President Biden and his team have set by undertaking a series of executive actions demonstrates their intention to move boldly and thoughtfully as the new Administration takes charge. As the Chairwoman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, I look forward to working with the President and his administration in supporting the development of solutions to issues that are impacting Americans like the COVID-19 pandemic, economic and public health disparities for minorities and communities of color, climate change, and the health of our environment.”
