Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
Recognizing Parents and Grandparents during Coronavirus
Thursday, March 19, 2020
Much has been said on the floor the past few days regarding our nation’s response to Coronavirus.
But this morning, after our prayer to the lord and after the pledge to our nation, I want to take this opportunity to send Iowa’s and our nation’s parents my commendation.
As schools close, the work of a parent or grandparent is more important than ever.
I know many children are scared or don’t understand why they can’t play with their friends, and this puts an extra burden on their parents on top of other challenges.
Those of you who are parents are raising America’s future and I want to recognize the importance of what you do every day.
