He briefly mentioned the bill legislators brought up that will rework the troubled CARES Act, the long-term care insurance coverage plan, which is being delayed until the summer of 2023.
He also again pushed the need for "Washin-tonians" to get vaccinated, and claimed the majority of persons in the hospital who have died were not vaccinated.
Nothing else of major substance affecting citizens was mentioned during his remarks in the press conference.
