The U.S. Senate has passed the third Coronavirus stimulus package, H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security Act (CARES Act). After extensive negotiations with the Administration, the package includes increased funding and relief for small businesses and loan forgiveness programs. The bill passed on a 96-0 vote. 

“ASA is pleased the U.S. Senate has passed the Coronavirus Stimulus legislation,” ASA Washington, D.C. representative Bob Redding said. “This bill includes numerous opportunities for assistance for automotive repair shops during these difficult times. We are hopeful that the U.S. House of Representatives will follow with final passage this week. The new loan forgiveness provisions are of particular importance for those shops experiencing business losses due to the virus.”

ASA, and other industry associations, have been working to ensure that automotive repair facilities and related facilities are not overlooked during the responses to this global health crisis and are considered essential services in the U.S. workforce. This includes contacting federal, state and local government officials.
