Twenty-two U.S. Senators wrote Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar urging him to replace HHS’ new standards for using and repaying COVID-19 Provider Relief Funds with the agency’s June directives. They join Sen. Josh Hawley and 30 other senators, who wrote Azar last week expressing their concerns, as did Sen. Roy Blunt in a separate letter. Informed by state and national advocacy, a majority of the U.S. Senate has contacted Secretary Azar on the topic.
