Written by admin on November 23, 2020
(WASHINGTON D.C.) CNN reported Monday afternoon that the General Services Administration informed President-elect Joe Biden that formal transition process can begin.
That information was relayed to the president-elect through a letter from Administrator Emily Murphy.
“As the Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, I have the ability under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963, as amended, to make certain post-election resources and services available to assist in the event of a presidential transition,” Murphy wrote. “I take this role seriously and, because of recent developments involving legal challenges and certifications of election results, am transmitting this letter today to make those resources and services available to you.”
Murphy’s letter comes after Michigan formally certified its election results on Monday and Georgia certified its results on Friday. Georgia is set to undergo a recount on Tuesday.
Pennsylvania and Arizona, two other states carried by the president-elect, are set to certify elections in the near-future.
President-elect Biden has recently named several people he plans to name as apointees to his cabinet.
The GSA has made several million dollars available to the incoming administration during the transition process.
