Indiana Senator Mike Braun Talks About Possible COVID Relief Bill

WASHINGTON — A new coronavirus relief bill is still possible, said Sen. Mike Braun. But, he believes it will only happen if lawmakers stick to discussing coronavirus-related relief money.

“A lot of the economy is back on its feet. But, there are certain sectors and small businesses and their employees that still need targeted help,” he said. “In Indiana particularly, you’ve got sports and entertainment venues, downtown hotels, airlines across the country, restaurants that haven’t been able to adapt to the spacing and takeout form.”

Braun said the new bill could also cover companies related to those businesses, which are also suffering. He said any bill that has a chance will be one that remains pure to helping people recover from the economic problems caused by coronavirus and lockdowns.
