Defense Production Act Of 1950

Iowa Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer of Dubuque is applauding President Trump for bringing back the “Defense Production Act of 1950. The “wartime” resolution allows for the mass production of medical supplies and emergency equipment needed to combat COVID-19. Finkenauer says both Democrats and Republicans understand the urgency of situation and have set politics aside. Dubuque assistant city manager Teri Goodman says healthcare providers in the county are also experiencing a shortage in medical supplies, but hopefully that will change with the return of the “Defense Production Act”. The President’s executive order allows for more health and medical resources to fight COVID-19 including personal protective equipment and ventilators.
