The Administrator of the General Services Administration has finally issued the letter authorizing funding for the transition to the new administration.
A press release from the Biden/Harris Transition:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 23, 2020
Statement by Biden-Harris Transition Executive Director Yohannes Abraham
The GSA Administrator has ascertained President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris as the apparent winners of the election, providing the incoming Administration with the resources and support necessary to carry out a smooth and peaceful transfer of power. Today’s decision is a needed step to begin tackling the challenges facing our nation, including getting the pandemic under control and our economy back on track. This final decision is a definitive administrative action to formally begin the transition process with federal agencies. In the days ahead, transition officials will begin meeting with federal officials to discuss the pandemic response, have a full accounting of our national security interests, and gain complete understanding of the Trump administration’s efforts to hollow out government agencies.
There’s a lot of work to be done to reverse Donald Trump’s (r) intentional destruction of the last four years. Fixing that destruction can’t and won’t happen overnight.
