WASHINGTON D.C. – An executive order was signed by President Joe Biden Thursday, securing supplies for responding to COVID-19.

Senator Jon Tester said in a release that making better use of the Defence Protection Act (DPA) is an effective way to utilize tools at hand to protect frontline workers and save lives.

“I’m glad that President Biden is taking swift and necessary measures to ensure that Montana and states across the country are well-equipped to weather this ongoing pandemic,” said Tester in a release. “For months, I’ve been urging the Administration to better utilize the tools at-hand to protect frontline workers, save lives, and bring all Americans through this crisis. Making better use of the DPA is an effective way to do just that, and I’ll be continuing to hold this Administration accountable this effort.”
