December 21, 2020

National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors will also include this legislation as a key vote for this Congress


Washington, DC – The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) today released the following statement regarding the bipartisan COVID-19 relief legislation.

From Eric Hoplin, NAW President and CEO:

“On behalf of the $5.7 trillion wholesale distribution industry and its over 5 million employees, NAW strongly supports today’s COVID-19 relief legislation and thanks Congress for their commitment to help businesses and employees nationwide.  The relief is critical in expanding and improving the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and helping businesses avoid a surprise tax increase by restoring deductibility of PPP loans.  Today’s legislation will help America’s distributors continue to supply critical goods to hospitals, schools, restaurants, and businesses across the country.  Because of the important provisions in this bill, NAW will include this as a key vote for this Congress.”
