Phillips Secures Vote on Bipartisan PPP Bill in Final Heroes Package
Washington, DC, May 15, 2020
Rep. Dean Phillips (MN-03) released the following statement today:
“After careful deliberation and meaningful conversations with Minnesotans, I have decided to vote in favor of the Heroes Act. This bill opens negotiations on the next bold legislative package America needs to protect the health of our citizens and economy. And while I have registered deep reservations about the process by which we reached this point, I am pleased to have secured from Congressional leadership a commitment for a vote on HR 6886, the bipartisan Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, a bill I am leading with Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) that will make much needed revisions to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Securing a bipartisan vote on this important and time sensitive legislation makes me more comfortable voting in favor of the Heroes Act.
