“We are disappointed that S. 4008 did not receive the necessary votes to pass, as it provided much needed relief funding for small businesses still struggling from the pandemic – including the motorcoach, school bus and passenger vessel industries.
The U.S. Senate plans to take up S. 4008 – The Small Business COVID Relief Act of 2022 – which provides additional $2 billion to the CERTS program (as well as funding for other small businesses) - early next week.
The White House issued a statement in response stating that the Transportation Security Administration would no longer enforce the mandate and that it is up to an individual whether to wear a mask.
Make Your Voice Heard on Capitol Hill
We want to send an email to Congress -- both CERTS Act cosponsors and non-cosponsors -- to update them on the industry's reaction to the recently released guidance. Simply fill out the form and it will auto-populate with your Members of Congress. As you will see on the next page, the email has been drafted and all you need to do is click 'submit'.
