Congress has passed two COVID-19 related bills which the President has signed and are being implemented.  The third one, Keeping Workers Paid and Employed Act, is projected to provide hundreds of billions of dollars of economic stimulus and emergency relief.  Bankers need to know what is in development so you and your customers can plan ahead.  Senator Gardner and subject matter experts will review the legislation and its timeline.  While details of the bill are not yet certain, the below description is accurate as of March 19.  It also is believed that the Act will address a postponement of CECL and needed language to deal with TDRs.


The Keeping Workers Paid and Employed Actwould prevent workers from losing their jobs and small businesses from failing due to economic losses caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan would provide cash-flow assistance through 100 percent federally guaranteed loans to employers who maintain their payroll during this emergency. If employers maintain their payroll, the loans would be forgiven, which would help workers to remain employed and affected small businesses and our economy to quickly snap-back after the crisis. This proposal would be retroactive to March 1, 2020, to help bring workers who may have already been laid off back onto payrolls.


Small Business Assistance – Targeted at small employers with <500 employees that would be eligible for the loans.  Loans would be immediately available through existing Small Business Administration-certified lenders, including banks and other financial institutions, and SBA would be required to streamline the process and the Secretary of Treasury would be authorized to make further enhancements to expedite delivery of capital to small employers. The size of the loans would be tied to an applicant’s average monthly payroll; mortgage, rent, and utility payments; and other debt obligations over the previous year. The maximum loan amount would be $10 million. Conditional upon business retaining their employees and payroll levels during the covered period (March 1, 2020, through June 30, 2020), the portion of the loan used to cover payroll and payments on pre-existing debt would be forgiven. Further, employers with tipped employees would receive forgiveness for additional wages paid to such employees during the covered time. The bill would provide $300 billion to support these loans.
