Funding Continues - Important Information for Leadership
There is much excitement taking place in Washington DC as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce continues to work with members of Congress on the next Coronavirus legislative relief package. One of the remaining debates is over lawsuit protections. They are inviting us and our members an opportunity to reach out to our officials to tell them of the importance of including these provisions in the next package.
