Senate COVID Preparedness Package

April 13, 2022 5:35 AM | Chelsey Blakenship (Administrator)

Action on the ‘‘Bipartisan COVID Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022,’’ will have to wait until the Senate returns from a two-week recess because of disputes over an unrelated immigration issue. The COVID preparedness bill, negotiated by Leader Schumer (D-NY) and Senator Romney (R-UT), is set to be offset with funds “repurposed” (clawed back) from unspent COVID funds. Notably, the offsets include all leftover money ($1.93 billion) in the SBA Shuttered Venues Operators Grants program and nearly $1 billion in unused funds dedicated to the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan program.
