Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Department of Labor released its February jobs report:

“February’s jobs report comes as families across America face an uncertain economic future as a result of the worsening coronavirus outbreak. 

“The coronavirus epidemic endangers both the health and financial security of our communities.  That is why House Democrats ensured that the emergency coronavirus response package also includes measures to protect the stability of local economies by providing an estimated $7 billion in low-interest SBA loans to support small businesses impacted by this epidemic. 

“Americans need a smart, strong and science-based response to this epidemic.  House Democrats will continue to listen to the experts and continue to work to ensure every community is receiving what it needs to combat this urgent public health crisis.”
