Senator David Perdue Fights For Additional COVID Relief For Georgia

Focused On Getting Safely Back To Work, Back To School, Beating This Virus

DULUTH, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) safely met with the Gwinnett and Greater North Fulton Chambers of Commerce to discuss the success of the bipartisan CARES Act and ongoing efforts in the U.S. Senate to pass additional relief for Georgians.

“In Georgia, the CARES Act and other relief packages provided our state with $47 billion in relief and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) saved over 1.5 million jobs. It also delivered additional resources to help our healthcare workers, ramp up testing, and develop lifesaving treatments and vaccines,” said Senator Perdue. “We want to make sure additional relief can continue to help our small businesses, hospitals, schools, and all those impacted immediately. While gridlock in Washington continues to hold things up, Senate Republicans put forward a serious relief package that will be reconsidered on the Senate floor next week. I strongly urge my colleagues to support it so we can get more people back to work, get kids safely back in school, and beat this virus. As I travel around the state, I specifically hear from so many people about how PPP helped their small business survive and what they need going forward. That’s why I will not stop fighting for the people of Georgia.” 

“The Greater North Fulton Chamber and our businesses appreciate Senator Perdue’s time this week, and we are grateful for his leadership in getting our businesses relief through PPP and the CARES Act,” said Greater North Fulton Chamber President & CEO Kali Boatright. “The Senator has been generous with his time and answering questions during this challenging season. We appreciate everything he is doing for us in the Senate, so that we can continue to do our jobs in Georgia.”

“We were honored Senator Perdue joined us as our guest,” said Gwinnett Chamber President & CEO Nick Masino. “We are grateful to have such a strong partner and a champion for free enterprise.”
