Maine State Chamber of Commerce Statement on Federal COVID-19 Stimulus Package
AUGUSTA, MAINE -- “The Maine State Chamber of Commerce greatly appreciates the work Maine’s federal delegation, U.S. Congress and the White House have done to craft the bipartisan, $2 trillion CARE Act stimulus package,” said Dana Connors, president of the Maine State Chamber of Commerce. “The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting businesses in every sector, of every size and economies at every level. The rescue package passed today is critical to first helping ensure Maine’s hospitals have the resources they need to care for our fellow Mainers. It also will help ensure that Maine businesses, employees, families, and our state and local economies endure the pandemic so Maine can get back to business as usual when this crisis passes.”
