This week, the Michigan State Legislature approved the use of $4.2 billion of the federal COVID-19 relief bill. The Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) is urging the Governor and State Legislature to work on funding the full $5.6 billion that Congress has passed through the most recent bipartisan COVID-19 relief bill.
“We urge the Governor and the State Legislature to work collaboratively to finalize a COVID-19 relief package that allocates the full $5.6 billion to support Michigan’s small businesses,” said Tim Daman, president & CEO, LRCC. “The relief package will ensure a consistent strategy for vaccine distribution and access, support for local municipalities, and assist our students and teachers in the classroom. There will be further opportunities for policy discussions, but small businesses, workers, and families are running out of resources and desperately need full financial relief.”
