Shaheen Hosts Call with NH Tourism & Hospitality Businesses After Senate Passes Bill to Improve PPP
Today, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) hosted a conference call with New Hampshire tourism and hospitality leaders to discuss needs and areas of concern as the tourism and hospitality industries, which play key roles in the State, continue to grapple with the economic fallout from COVID-19. During the call, Shaheen heard more about their experiences and challenges they have faced operating in the present environment, and shared an update from the Senate on legislative efforts to provide relief to these hard-hit industries, including news of passage of the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act – bipartisan legislation that reforms the Paycheck Protection Program to ensure funding assistance reaches small businesses that need it most. The changes included in this legislation had been requested by many Granite State small businesses.
