Washington, DC: Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after President Trump signed the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act into law. The legislation—which Womack voted for on the House floor yesterday—replenishes the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), provides additional funding for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Programand enhances resources to support hospitals and testing capacity:

With today’s signing, more help is finally on its way. This bill replenishes a crucial lifeline for small businesses and workers in Arkansas, while also supporting hospitals and enhancing testing capacity. There is no doubt that these urgent needs should have been addressed sooner. Additionally, I am still concerned about other aspects of our economy–namely our farmers, ranchers, and the entire food supply chain. We must push aid to this vital sector in a more timely manner. In the weeks ahead, I urge Congress to put the partisan games aside and work together to defeat this virus and get our nation moving again.”
