New polling shows that two-thirds of Americans believe the COVID pandemic was sparked by dangerous animal experiments at the taxpayer-funded Wuhan lab.
Fortunately, White Coat Waste Project (WCW)-friendly state lawmakers in Maine, Texas , and Georgia are sticking up for taxpayers and urging their federal peers to investigate what happened in Wuhan.
Now, just in time for #SunshineWeek (a week dedicated to government transparency!), Iowa State Senator Kevin Alons (R) has introduced a resolution doing the same.
As the first organization to expose and cut taxpayer funding for gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan animal lab, we applaud Sen. Alons for his leadership!
Iowa lawmakers have been at the forefront of federal efforts to investigate the Wuhan animal lab. Since early 2020, Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) has been working with WCW to expose and defund the Wuhan lab and their shady bagmen at EcoHealth Alliance. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and U.S. Reps. Randy Feenstra (R-IA), Ashley Hinson (R-IA), and Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) have backed initiatives to probe a potential lab leak and crack down on dangerous animal labs, too.
For over three years, we have been urging the White House and Congress—and working directly with federal lawmakers—to secure an investigation into the Wuhan lab and to permanently defund it.
There are lots of outstanding questions about what happened in Wuhan, and taxpayers deserve answers. Fortunately, the House and Senate have both just voted to declassify intelligence about COVIDs origins and sent their bill to President Biden’s desk. And, after years of delays and advocacy by WCW and its supporters, Congress is finally investigating and holding its first hearings.
It’s high time for answers and accountability!
