Boise, ID - “The Boise Metro Chamber applauds our Congressional delegation and the President for passing a new relief bill containing many of the provisions the Boise Metro Chamber has been lobbying for. Namely, expanded and extended Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans and other aide for small businesses, restaurants, live venue operators, airline workers, and a host of other programs to jumpstart our economic recovery” said Bill Connors, President and CEO of the Boise Metro Chamber.
Included are a few bill highlights of particular importance to the Chamber and our members:
-Expansion of the PPP program to new and current small and medium business recipients as well as additional non-profit entities ineligible under the original program
“Our Chamber has been working for months with our partners at the U.S. Chamber, and the U.S. Travel Association in Washington D.C. We thank our Congressional delegation: Senator Crapo, Senator Risch, Representative Simpson and Representative Fulcher for their support in helping our most vulnerable workers and businesses,” added Connors.
