WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Monday, April 20, 2020, U.S. Rep. Fred Upton and the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus - 25 Democrats and 25 Republicans strong - released its Reopening and Recovery “Back to Work” Checklist, a multi-prong, science-based, data-driven proposal focused on reopening America safely and reigniting the economy.

The 50-member bipartisan Caucus found consensus on the bipartisan set of recommendations focused on public health, economic rescue, and stimulus plans for our country’s immediate future. The plan will serve as guiding principles that the Problem Solvers Caucus hope to see incorporated and addressed in the country’s plans to address the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
Copies of the Reopening and Recovery Back to Work Checklist have been delivered to Congressional leadership and the White House as options for immediate consideration in the next phase(s) of Coronavirus response.
“Our bipartisan plan to get folks back to work while prioritizing public health and safety sets benchmarks based on science,” said Rep. Fred Upton. “This plan focuses on our nation’s immediate needs to keep people healthy, stimulate our economy, and protect folks’ jobs. We need to lower the temperature in the room and realize that reopening our nation will require a dynamic, multifaceted approach, and I look forward to working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reopen America.”
The Problem Solvers Caucus is a bipartisan group in Congress comprised of 50 members – equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – who are committed to forging bipartisan cooperation on key issues. Upton serves as a vice chair.
