Hearing Today on Senate Bill 531

A message from Oregon State Chamber of Commerce…

Now is the time for local Chambers and local businesses to voice their support for Senate Bill 531 and the ability for businesses to be fully reimbursed for damages from state ordered economic shutdowns.

The hearing will take place TODAY, February 18th at 3:15pm in the Senate Committee On Veterans and Emergency Preparedness.

OSCC supports SB 531, as it would ensure that business could be reimbursed for actual damages from business closures required by emergency rules or order. This includes the business closures that resulted from the Governor’s Executive Order 20-12, when businesses were closed in the interest of public health and slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

This is your opportunity as a Chamber to weigh in with your support and talk about the impact these closures have had on your business community.

Paycheck Protection Program Webinar

Have you heard?! There is a new COVID relief package!

A Message From…

Join Me for a Paycheck Protection Program Webinar for Small Businesses and Non-Profits!
Dear Neighbor, I hope your new year is off to a good start and that you are entering 2021 healthy and safe. Before we embarked on the new year, Congress passed another COVID relief package which I was proud to help negotiate through my Problem Solvers Caucus. This package included a new round of the Paycheck Protection Program with hundreds of millions in funds allotted for small businesses and non-profits still struggling with the economic setbacks from the COVID-19 pandemic. To answer your questions about this new round of relief, or perhaps your questions regarding loan forgiveness applications from the first round, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, January 19th from 8:00am PST to 9:30am PST for a small business webinar with representatives from the Small Business Administration and the Small Business Development Center.
