STATEMENT FROM CONGRESSMAN JOE MORELLE ON LATEST CORONAVIRUS RELIEF LEGISLATION
(Washington, D.C.) – “COVID-19 has upended our daily lives—leaving families, businesses, and communities across our nation struggling to stay afloat. As we respond to this rapidly evolving situation, I am grateful that we were able to come together to provide much-needed relief for small businesses by expanding the Paycheck Protection Program, secure critical investments to ramp up testing nationwide, and strengthen funding for our hospitals and healthcare workers who have been on the front lines of this public health crisis.
“Though I am proud of this important step, there is still so much work to be done to ensure all Americans have the resources they need to get through this unprecedented challenge. My colleagues and I will continue working diligently towards additional relief packages that support workers, uplift families, and help our communities move forward.”
