Lawmakers react to the government's paycheck protection program drying up
The Small Business Administration announced Thursday it can no longer accept applications for the government's Paycheck Protection Program.
The pool of money has run dry, according to Congressional lawmakers.
There are over 30 million small businesses in the nation that employ half of the country’s workforce. Congress and the Trump administration rolled out a Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses hit hard by the coronavirus. The program provided $350 billion.
Lawmakers commented on the program and gave their take on the process to re-open the economy. Watch the interviews above.
