Statement on U.S. Senate Passage of Coronavirus Relief Bill

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy released a statement on the U.S. Senate passage of a $2 trillion Coronavirus/COVID-19 stimulus package:

Duffy said, “Rochester Chamber supports relief for businesses, employers, and workers who are struggling to make ends meet at this difficult and unique time. We also support ensuring that New York State has the funding it needs to continue the great work being led by Governor Cuomo. Leading in times of crisis is far from easy and Governor Cuomo has handled the COVID-19 pandemic the same way he handles everything - with a level head and an eye toward resolution. We hope the final deal ends up effectively supporting businesses, the governor’s efforts, and the efforts of local governments.”
