The Woodlands Area Chamber Urges Immediate Adoption of Legislation to Help Workers, Businesses Impacted by the Coronavirus
The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce urges members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to immediately adopt legislation to aid workers and businesses impacted by the coronavirus:
"The latest proposal by Sen. McConnell and the administration would provide support for businesses of all sizes across all industries that have been significantly impacted by the spread of the coronavirus. The bill would help businesses stay open and pay their employees, reduce the potential of future layoffs, and ensure more hardworking Americans have access to their paychecks.
Every hour that Congress delays action increases the risk that more businesses will shutter and more Americans will fall into unemployment. We can not and should not allow this to happen. We urge Congress to act in a bipartisan manner to work out any remaining differences on this legislation and pass the bill without delay."
