This is the January 20, 2022 hearing on "View from the States: Governors Respond to the Omicron Variant," held before the U.S. House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of James E. Clyburn: "This hearing comes at a pivotal moment in our Nation's response. As we gather today, we are facing new challenges from the highly transmissible Omicron variant, which is resulting in higher case numbers than ever before. However, there is a reason to be hopeful. Earlier research indicates that Omicron causes less severe disease than previous strands of the coronavirus. We have more effective therapeutics at our disposal than ever to treat the disease. And, most importantly, all approved coronavirus vaccines and boosters continue to provide robust protection against severe disease and death from the Omicron variant." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jared Polis, Pedro Pierluisi, Muriel Bowser, Pete Ricketts, and Jay Inslee.
