SANTA FE, N.M., April 2, 2020—From Jason Espinoza, New Mexico state director for NFIB, on the release of its poll showing 92 percent of small-business owners negatively affected by the coronavirus and about half of small employers saying they can survive for no more than two months, and about one-third believing they can remain operational for 3-6 months.

“There is no putting a brave face on these grim numbers. There’s only rolling up our sleeves and getting to work on the road to recovery, which runs down Main Street first, and requires small-business revitalization. And that means immediate relief, coupled with medium and long-term policy solutions to boost small-business growth.”
