(There is no CLE credit for these webinars.)
On Friday March 27, 2020, President Trump signed Senate Bill 3548, the "Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act" or "CARES Act," into law. Included in the CARES Act is the establishment of the $150 billion Coronavirus Relief Fund, from which the Treasury will provide direct assistance to state and local governments. The webinar will provide an overview on the terms and conditions for use of funds, including an overview of Ohio S.B. 310, which has unanimously passed the Senate and is now being considered in the Ohio House. As proposed, S.B. 310 provides the mechanism for the allocation of the approximately $3.755 billion that Ohio is receiving from the Coronavirus Relief Fund. The webinar will include time for questions from participants.
