1. NECA-Supported PPP Flexibility Act Passes the House
NECA’s Look Ahead: The Senate is expected to take the bill up early next week. It is unclear if the Senate will make additional revisions to the legislation at this time. NECA’s government affairs team will continue to monitor this legislation as it moves through the Senate.
2. House Holds Hearing on Protecting Workers from COVID-19
NECA’s look Ahead: NECA will continue to monitor any changes in OSHA guidance as it pertains to COVID-19. We have reached out to the Representatives on the subcommittee as well as OSHA as a resource to ensure NECA contractors’ needs are met.
3. Take Action: Tell Your Representatives NECA’s Requests In Phase IV Legislation
On May 15, 2020, the HEROES Act passed in the House of Representatives in a 208-199 vote. The Senate is crafting their own Phase IV bill and we are optimistic that many NECA-supported provisions will be included in the final legislation. NECA encourages its members to Take Action and voice our industry’s needs to Congress. NECA remains focused on advocating for our electrical contractors throughout this period to ensure our members’ voices are heard.
