Small Business Relief Fund for Restaurants Opens This Week, No Thanks to the GOP
Every Republican, including Rep. Gallagher, voted against critical support
(MADISON) — Despite Congressional Republicans’ best efforts to block the bill, the American Rescue Plan’s Restaurant Revitalization Fund opened up yesterday, allowing small businesses across Wisconsin the opportunity to apply for assistance. Every single Republican voted against the Restaurant Revitalization Fund, including Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher.
Small businesses and restaurants make Wisconsin great, but so many of them are struggling as a result of the pandemic, and a return to normalcy won’t be enough to keep them afloat. Restaurant sales were down 30% in Wisconsin last year.
