TONAWANDA, NY (WKBW) — What could the stimulus relief package look like for you?
Federal lawmakers agreed to a $900 billion package for pandemic relief. It calls for more funding for businesses and the unemployed.
This much needed relief is expected to come soon as nearly 12-million Americans stand to loose access to unemployment benefits as an earlier COVID relief package is set to expire at the end of the month.
But the president and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, Dottie Gallagher, says two significant things are missing from this stimulus package; employer liability coverage that would protect from frivolous COVID lawsuits and also there is no money in this package for state and local governments.
