Inhofe Statement After Democrats Block Relief for Oklahoma Small Businesses

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe released the following statement today after Senate Democrats blocked additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, which has provided 65,165 Oklahoma small businesses $5.4 billion in payroll grants. 

“The Paycheck Protection Program has worked for Oklahomans,” Inhofe said. “That’s why it’s especially upsetting that the Democrats chose to block necessary funding to continue the program today on the Senate floor. In Oklahoma alone, the program has helped hundreds of thousands of employees retain their jobs through loans to small businesses, but more help is needed. My colleagues across the aisle need to wake up and start working for the American people instead of against them.”
