While understanding the extreme importance of opening up the nation’s meat processing plants, U.S. Senator Tina Smith has concerns and is worried:

“We all want these meat processing plants to be open but they have to be reopened safely and just declaring they will reopen does not address the safety issues that exist inside these plants.”

Smith says she hasn’t seen the executive order in full but says in the end worker safety is key in protecting them and the nation’s food supply.
