Congressman holds hearing on pandemic relief for small businesses

4th District Congressman Jim Himes has led a virtual committee hearing to examine how government aid from the CARES Act and subsequent economic rescue bills was accessible to small and minority-owned businesses.  Himes says it's vital to understand why  aid to minority-owned businesses was delayed, while other well-connected businesses that were hurting less made their way to the front of the line.  He notes that the way these programs were structured allowed larger businesses and those with more established banking relationships to have greater access to funds than small and minority-owned businesses.
