Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker complained that states are competing against each other for key supplies and there needs to be more federal coordination on these goods, he said in an interview with on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.
As a result, everyone is competing against each other jurisdictions are paying higher prices, Pritzker said.
“We need millions of masks and hundreds of thousands of gowns and gloves and the rest. And unfortunately, we’re getting still just a fraction of that. So we’re out on the open market, competing for these items that we so badly need and we’re succeeding in some ways. but we still need more,” Pritzker said.
