U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, who chairs the House Education and Labor Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Human Services, said the money can be used to purchase personal protective equipment, cleaning supplies and increase ventilation, among other things, in order to bolster in-person education during an age of illness. "Some schools in Northwest Oregon have been able to reopen, but many have not," said Bonamici, who represents much of the metro area's west side. "We all want students and educators back in schools, but they need resources to make sure everyone is safe."
