NFIB Urges Senate to Continue Work on Legislation to Provide Small Businesses Relief

Date: March 22, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 22, 2020) — NFIB, the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, issued the following statement from NFIB President Brad Close in response to the United State Senate’s failure to advance S. 3548, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, today:

“We are disappointed the Senate failed to provide crucial and immediate financial assistance that small businesses tell us they so desperately need. Small businesses are facing unprecedented challenges during this public health crisis. State and local governments continue to shut down businesses and quarantine workers, while small business owners are doing everything they can to support their employees. We are grateful to Senators Collins, Rubio, and Crapo for their efforts to provide immediate help to small business owners, which have attracted bipartisan support. We encourage them to continue their hard work and improve the provisions so that our nation’s small businesses can get the support they need during this critical time.”
