U.S. Chamber In Action

We believe no family should face financial ruin because of a loss of income and no business should go bankrupt because of a temporary loss in revenue as a result of the coronavirus.

This week, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce proposed three ideas to support American businesses and workers, and mitigate job losses amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Specifically, the Chamber called for legislation that would:

  1. Cancel payment of all payroll taxes typically paid by employers for March, April, and May.
  2. Expand and streamlining loan programs for small businesses with fewer than 500 employees experiencing revenue loss as a result of the coronavirus.
  3. Enable the creation of credit facilities to provide loans and loan guarantees to employers with more than 500 employees experiencing significant revenue loss as a result of the coronavirus.

The U.S. Chamber recommended these policy actions in addition to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act that President Trump has now signed into law.
