COVID Phase 4 Priorities

Updated July 29
Debate Begins as Senate Republicans Release Their COVID-19 Economic Stimulus Package

Senate Republicans released their COVID-19 economic stimulus package on Monday. Now, negotiations are underway as lawmakers seek common ground between the GOP’s HEALS Act and the Democrats’ HEROES Act, which the House passed back in May. (Compare the two bills here.) As the debate begins, AAHOA remains committed to promoting our industry priorities that address the needs of hotel owners. You can do your part by signing our priorities letter to Congress and engaging your legislators on social media.

Businesses Seek Liability Shield from Congress As COVID-19 Lawsuits Pile Up

The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues – but now on an entirely different front. More than 2,600 coronavirus-related lawsuits have been filed this year, according to the law firm Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, which has been tracking the lawsuits. More than 1,300 were filed in the past six weeks – 23 on June 5 alone – prompting business groups to refocus almost all their lobbying efforts on securing liability protections from Congress. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, one of the loudest voices in favor of a liability shield, is calling for Congress to pass legislation before July 4. But with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saying there won’t be any action on the next coronavirus bill until after the two-week July 4 recess, it isn’t likely to happen. Read more here and keep track of the lawsuits nationwide here.
