Mark Kelly Statement on Issues with Small Business Loans

Today, Mark Kelly released the following statement as more reports surface that small businesses in Arizona are having trouble accessing the funds that were intended for them in the latest coronavirus relief package, and that big banks are favoring certain customers in administering that small business relief:

“I’ve heard over and over from small businesses across Arizona that the clock is ticking for them, and now it’s clear many of them are running into a wall of red tape blocking them from the aid they desperately need. Congress created this program and put much of the application process in the hands of big banks, and they have to provide accountability and make sure this money is getting to those small business owners and their employees who need it.” – Mark Kelly
