House Democrats Block Small Business Aid Extension for 40th Time

Chabot said on the House floor on Thursday that small businesses need the extension of the PPP, explaining:

A recent NFIB survey indicated that over half of small business owners expect to seek additional financial assistance over the next year. If they can’t access that help, they may be forced to lay off employees or cease operations.
