The select committee on Covid-19, chaired by House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), meetS in the House on Capitol Hill. Rep. Clyburn is serious about the issue of wearing masks to contain virus spread.  He says if any Republicans refuse to wear masks, he will not let them in the committee meeting nor would they be recognized on the floor.

Clyburn believes he has found abuses and profiteering related to coronavirus. His job is to review expenditures and determine if money is being spent efficiently, effectively, and equitably.
