Washington, D.C. - Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) issued the following statement regarding passage of H.R. 266, the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act:

"Additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to ensure our businesses are able to pay American workers was held up for far too long. Save for Nancy Pelosi’s objections, Congress could have come together weeks ago to guarantee American workers were paid and small businesses could survive. With today’s vote, Americans can be sure that Congress delivered significant resources to the American people, our economy, and for the fight against Coronavirus.”
