As you know, Congress passed a $900 billion pandemic relief package to deliver critical resources to American families and businesses adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In response to the passage of this legislation, U.S. Chamber CEO Tom Donohue released the following statement.
“The Chamber applauds a truly bipartisan compromise that finally puts the American people and businesses ahead of partisan squabbling. We commend the Congressional leadership and the bipartisan senators and representatives whose actions led to this achievement. Together, they have illustrated how we can break partisan gridlock in the new Congress next year. [This] package includes aid for small businesses and nonprofits, extension of unemployment programs, funding for schools and day care centers, and resources to support vaccinations before the end of the year. It will help small businesses and Americans contend with the devastating economic impact of the pandemic, which, of course, has tragically taken more than 300,000 Americans this year."
