Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is in Washington D.C. today for a meeting at the White House.
Edwards is scheduled to have a meeting with President Trump around 10 a.m. local time to discuss the ongoing pandemic.
“I look forward to having a substantive conversation with President Trump about Louisiana’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, our plans to re-open additional businesses next month, and our ongoing needs as we surge our testing capacity to 200,000 tests per month beginning in May," said the Governor in a statement released Tuesday. "I am appreciative of the President’s attention to Louisiana and his support for our people during this difficult time for our state. Brighter days are ahead for Louisiana and by working together with our federal partners, I know we will get through this.”
On Tuesday, the President had a similar meeting with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
