Saturday, February 5, 2022 – Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement about disinformation surrounding a bipartisan letter he sent to White House COVID-19 Response Team Coordinator Jeffrey Zients:


“Disinformation continues to circulate that I have introduced a bill to cap nurses’ pay. That is false.

“There is no bill, and I do not support capping nurses’ pay.

“The bipartisan letter I sent to the White House asks about potential illegal practices by staffing agencies that charge high rates and then keep that money for themselves, not nurses. Rumors are that middleman staffing agencies keep as much as 40% of the money they charge for nurses instead of giving more of the money to the nurses.

“I do not and will not support legislation to cap nurses’ pay. Anything to the contrary is fake news.”
