Negotiations Continue on COVID-19 Relief Package for Small Businesses and Employees
As of 8:15 p.m. tonight, no action has been taken on a Congressional relief package due to ongoing negotiations with the House and Senate.

Send another message to Illinois' Congressional leaders to help guarantee that small businesses and their employees receive the most possible relief from the Phase 3 relief package.
