Republican Senator Mike Lee is part of the group that will help reopen the American economy. 

President Trump has appointed Senator Lee to the Congressional Economic Task Force this afternoon. 

The bipartisan group of lawmakers will counsel the president about how to get American workers back into their jobs while dealing with the ongoing threat of the coronavirus. 

In a statement, Lee says the country "had a booming economy before this crisis, and with the right safeguards in place, we will have a booming recovery too."
