ICBA is now calling on community bankers to enlist small-business customers in urging Congress to immediately pass legislation to simplify Paycheck Protection Program forgiveness.
ICBA added a call alert for small-business owners to its existing alert for community bankers on its Be Heard grassroots action center. The alerts make it easy to call lawmakers and urge passage of the Paycheck Protection Small Business Forgiveness Act (H.R. 7777/S. 4117).
The bipartisan bill would provide simplified forgiveness for PPP loans of $150,000 or less. ICBA has led the push for simplified forgiveness and repeatedly called on Congress not to leave Washington without passing this urgent legislation.
