Business Roundtable Supports Policies to Keep Americans Safe During the Pandemic and Enable a Strong Economic Recovery

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis we have adjusted how we work to keep our customers and workers safe. That is more important than ever as we work to speed up the safe re-opening of our economy. We are meeting that challenge head on through actions and policies that help speed up vaccination, support small businesses, educate the public and work to get our schools safely open.

To help get there, we encourage leaders in Congress and to enact COVID-19 rescue legislation to strengthen the nation’s public health response and provide targeted assistance to struggling individuals and small businesses. As Congress negotiates the legislation, we believe the package should prioritize measures to strengthen the public health response and address short-term, emergency needs. We urge Congress and the Biden Administration to work on a bipartisan basis to protect vulnerable Americans, vaccinate communities and accelerate the national economic recovery.
