Owens Co-Signs Letter to Biden Regarding Supply Chain Crisis

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) and 160 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to President Biden, urging him to immediately reconsider radical partisan policies that are quickly eroding the U.S. supply chain. The letter was led by Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Sam Graves (MO-06) and Natural Resources Ranking Member Bruce Westerman (AR-04).

In the letter, the members write: “The current supply chain crisis exposes how close to its limit our transportation system operates. We must address the global supply chain and ports crisis before Congress even considers additional social spending and taxation legislation. Our priority right now should be strengthening our Nation’s economy and increasing our global competitiveness.”

The members continue: “The policies of your Presidency and party’s leaders in Congress are exacerbating or simply ignoring the underlying supply chain crisis. These policies include the mishandling of the COVID response in ways that are prolonging unemployment and worker shortages across the economy, to your push for a multi-trillion-dollar spending spree that is driving up prices of everything from gas to groceries. These efforts only serve to weaken American competitiveness and shrink our economy, and they will certainly ensure that this Christmas will not be merry.”
