Scaled back Covid relief proposal would help small businesses and foster economic recovery

Fairfax, Va.— Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement on a bipartisan proposal to provide Covid economic relief:

“The compromise proposal on Covid economic relief legislation appears to be a promising framework that will ensure that the state-led lockdowns will not have another disastrous effect on small businesses by reupping the Paycheck Protection Program by $288 billion, and more broadly the economy as a whole by supporting a more rapid recovery in 2021. We look forward to seeing all of the details as the Senate, House and White House all work towards final passage.”
