WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn recently joined members of local Hispanic Chambers of Commerce throughout Texas, U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce leadership, the Texas Association of Mexican American Chamber of Commerce, and the Texas Latino Conservatives.

In a press release the senator, in a series of video conference calls, said he shared information about federal resources available to Texans and Texas businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic through the recently-passed CARES Act and to hear their concerns and priorities.

The release also said, for the Chambers, Senator Cornyn also invited a representative from the U.S. Small Business Administration on the call to help answer questions about targeted programs the CARES Act initiated to provide loans to small businesses in need.

More information on how the CARES Act helps small businesses stay afloat and keep their employees on the payroll is available here.

“Because of the coronavirus, many Texans find themselves without a job, or with a business that’s not viable during CDC’s social distancing guidelines,” said Sen. Cornyn.  “Congress has delivered targeted relief for Texas workers and small businesses needing a lifeline, and these calls gave me the opportunity to let Texans know what options are available to help them stay afloat.”

Sen. Cornyn’s website has additional resources for Texans during the COVID-19 pandemic here.
