U.S. Senator David Perdue Highlights The Positive Impact Of The PPP
As Georgians continue to face the challenges from COVID-19, U.S. Senator David Perdue is fighting through Washington gridlock to ensure they have the resources they need to get through this crisis.
Capitol Beat News Service highlighted Senator Perdue‘s fireside chat at the Georgia Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting, where he spoke on a wide variety of topics, including the impact of the Paycheck Protection Program, which has saved over 1.5 million jobs in Georgia, most through community bank loans to small businesses with an average of ten employees.
Senator Perdue also highlighted the need for police reform by ensuring that officers reflect the communities they serve, stepping up de-escalation training, and improving databases used to track abuse complaints. Senator Perdue stated that “people want the law to be enforced… but we also have to have confidence that our police officers are one of us.” Senator Perdue also emphasized his opposition to the lawless “defund the police” agenda that would put public safety at risk.
