Chambers write letter to Maryland congressional delegation urging quick coronavirus relief
SALISBURY, Md. – Several Chambers of Commerce have worked together to send a letter to the Maryland Congressional Delegation urging them to work on more coronavirus relief.
In the letter, leaders at local chambers of commerce wrote how urgent relief is for business owners, renters, and residents in the state of Maryland, many of whom are still struggling financially because of the pandemic.
Bill Chambers, the President of the Salisbury area chamber of commerce, tells 47 ABC that Maryland’s congressional delegation needs to work quickly to address concerns in a few key areas.
Those areas include unemployment insurance and funding for local governments. Chambers says the delegation needs to work fast as things could get worse before they get better.
“The covid crisis is not over, it’s ramping up again, and the financial and economic hardship is nowhere near over, and it is subject to get very much worse if the United States Congress, specifically the Senate, doesn’t act swiftly,” Chambers said.
The Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce and the Dorchester Chamber of Commerce also signed off on that letter. In total there were 25 Chambers of Commerce that participated.
