In letter, State Rep. Beck urges Gov. Holcomb to throw a lifeline to Hoosier small businesses
INDIANAPOLIS – Last Friday, State Representative Lisa Beck (D-Lakes of the Four Seasons) sent a letter to Governor Eric Holcomb requesting Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding be available upon request by small businesses for expenditures and lost revenue. The prioritization of public health has required the Hoosier economy to start and stop, which has taken a toll on small business owners.
In her letter, Beck offers the Governor multiple pragmatic solutions to expand programs currently available based off of success stories from other states like New Jersey and Ohio to help provide relief and stimulate the economy.
“Small businesses are the bedrock of the Hoosier economy, and executive leadership must take quick and decisive action to push them through this public health crisis,” Beck said. “The long-term effects of COVID-19 are still unknown; however, it will likely take some of these small businesses years to recover from the financial devastation. I have had many conversations with small business owners in Northwest Indiana, and I have heard the cry for a lifeline. I'm hoping the Governor takes action soon.”
