U.S. Senators Want to Reevaluate Border Restrictions
U.S. Senators from Maine and New Hampshire want the federal government to reevaluate the restrictions on travel between the U.S. and Canada during the coronavirus pandemic.
The senators say the restrictions “put an immense strain on the communities that straddle the border” along the world’s longest international boundary.
They also said the risk of significant cross-border transmission of coronavirus appears to be low at this time in many border areas.
The bipartisan group includes Sen. Susan Collins and i Sen. Angus King of Maine as well as Sens. Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
