U.S. Chamber Stresses Need for Congressional Action to Address Coronavirus Economic Recovery

Saturday, August 8, 2020 - 6:45pm

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley today issued the following statement on executive orders on the economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

“While well intentioned, today’s Executive Orders are no substitute for Congressional action. For schools to get the resources to safely reopen, for small businesses to receive aid to stay afloat, to remove the threat of frivolous lawsuits, for families and our economy to get the support this moment requires, Congress must act. There is no alternative to Congress legislating and no excuse for their inaction.”
