    North Dakota’s Delegation Coronavirus Updates from Washington D.C.

    The Governor and State Agencies are working to provide accurate information and aid to business. Also at the national level, Congress and the President are quickly pushing relief packages for the business community across the country. No word at this point if the North Dakota legislature plans to call a special session.

    Here are some updates from our North Dakota’s delegation.        

    Senator John Hoeven: 
    “Congress has approved the first two phases of legislation to prepare and respond to COVID-19 and we continue working on additional relief. The first phase provided $8.3 billion in funding through the CDC, FDA and other HHS agencies to help our health care providers to detect and treat this virus. We approved phase two earlier this week to assist families, workers and small businesses impacted by this public health emergency and provide paid family and sick leave to help stem the further spread of the virus. Moving forward, we are working on phase 3 legislation to help stimulate the economy, provide direct financial relief to families, support small businesses and maintain the operation of our nation’s essential industries.”

    Senator Kevin Cramer:
