A member of the U.S. House Small Business Committee is upset
that farmers have had problems signing up for the Paycheck Protection Program.
Congresswoman Angie Craig is a Democrat from Minnesota.
“Family farmers should’ve been allowed to participate in the first round of funding, and the legislative intent was that they would be able to. So I was very frustrated with the Small Business Administration and the inability to open that up to farmers quickly enough.”
She tells Brownfield with many farmers still waiting for their applications to be processed, the second round of funding is about to run out.
