WASHINGTON (KTVZ) — Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., on Thursday co-sponsored legislation that would provide $1.2 billion to ensure federally-assisted senior housing facilities have the resources to protect residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. „Seniors in Oregon and across the country face serious dangers from both COVID-19 and inaction from the federal government to protect them,” Wyden said.
