Rep. Arrington advocating to 'bring our businesses back online'

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington is serving on a panel tasked with bringing the economy back online.

It's called the Economic Recovery Task Force, within the Republican Conference.

In a digital town hall Thursday afternoon, Arrington said it's time to balance live and livelihood now that the country is moving out of response and into recovery. He advocates for a gradual re-opening based on facts, science and community needs.

Arrington said priority number one is to refill the financial reserve for the Payroll Protection Program, the group of federally-backed loans for small businesses.

The Small Business Administration announced it's no longer accepting applications. It's already promised $350 billion since its approval a few weeks ago.
