AIA President and CEO: Flexibility Key to Small Business Survival, Long-term Solution Still Needed

Arlington, Va. – Today, President Trump signed H.R. 7010, the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, into law. Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) President and CEO Eric Fanning released the following statement:

            “Throughout this crisis, access to cash and flexibility have been critical to ensuring the survival of small businesses that are the lifeblood of our industry and our nation. This bill makes it easier for additional companies to use this important financial assistance to help keep highly skilled workers employed and our supply chain working. To further protect these vital businesses and jobs, we urge Congress and the Administration to develop long-term solutions to help jumpstart our economy and strengthen our industry because both are essential to America’s recovery.”
