INDIANAPOLIS – Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane (D-Anderson) had the following response to the governor’s latest update on COVID-19 response measures:

“I appreciate the governor updating the media and public on these latest developments in the state’s efforts to combat COVID-19. I applaud the actions taken to suspend utility disconnects, halt residential evictions and protect Hoosier’s health and incomes during these difficult times. However, I do want to relay Hoosiers’ concerns about the availability of adequate tests to detect the virus and medical equipment for its treatment. I’ve heard much apprehension especially as we see an increase in the spread of the virus. In all, I want to encourage the governor to continue to communicate in a clear manner the state’s guidance to Hoosiers on how we can defeat this growing health threat together.”
