Davis Named to President's Bipartisan Task Force on Reopening the Economy
U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) today was named to President Trump's bipartisan Task Force on Reopening the Economy.
"Up until last month, we had months of record-low unemployment and historic economic growth, but this pandemic has halted everything and now we need to figure out how we get through this and back to a booming economy," said Davis. "I believe we can start by ensuring the administration has the resources needed to continue to implement successful programs, like the Paycheck Protection Program, to help businesses now. I'm thankful for President Trump's leadership on this and I look forward to working with the administration, this task force, and others to safely get Americans back to work and our economy back on track."
Davis has called for immediate passage of additional funding for the Payment Protection Program (PPP), which the Small Business Administration (SBA) announced this morning has ran out of funding and can no longer accept applications.
Earlier this week, President Trump announced members of the Great American Economic Revival Industry Groups, which included businesses with a 13th District presence, such as Archer Midland Daniels (ADM), Caterpillar, and others.
