Yesterday, additional funding was finally appropriated two weeks after Gary Peters and Democrats blocked aid for the Paycheck Protection Program. Last Thursday, the program ran dry, and from then on was unable to support any further small businesses and their employees. Republicans attempted to preemptively replenish the fund but were shot down by Senate Democrats.
“This aid is much-needed and long overdue because Gary Peters and Democrats wanted to run out the clock with their political games – something that has been detrimental to many Michigan small businesses.” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “Moving forward, the hardworking people of our state shouldn’t suffer because our junior senator wants to be in lock step with Chuck Schumer’s liberal agenda.”
