Congressman Higgins Calls on Governor Edwards to Fully Reopen Louisiana

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) sent a letter today to Governor John Bel Edwards urging him to fully reopen Louisiana’s economy and cease all state-level COVID-19 mandates.

The letter reads, in part, “I respectfully request that you officially end all state-level COVID-19 restrictions. Infection rates are down. We cannot delay restoration of freedoms. Our people cannot make it under continued restrictions. The Trump Administration’s Operation Warp Speed has been an amazing success. Several FDA-approved vaccines have been developed and made available to the public. We have begun to see several other states end their mandates, including our neighbors Texas and Mississippi. Louisiana already struggles to compete against Texas’ pro-business laws. If you continue to mandate that businesses may only operate at a limited capacity, we will continue to lose residents and economic drivers to our western neighbors.”
