CONCORD – Today, the Senate passed SB 107, relative to financial assistance for businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. SB 107 will expand access to federal relief funds for new small businesses that have suffered because of the pandemic.
After the vote, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth) issued the following statement:
“Today’s vote is an important step toward ensuring that New Hampshire small businesses who are most in need of help can access much-needed federal relief funds. Newer small businesses are more important now than ever, as they are responding to new needs and creating new jobs in the state. SB 107 will ensure that the businesses that need it most can access any future discretionary federal relief funds received by the state, so they can continue to meaningfully contribute to our workforce and economy. We need to be fighting for our small businesses. They have adapted, struggled and survived this long under extraordinary circumstances, and we should be supporting them however we can at the State level.”
