Stephen Waguespack Talks Businesses In Phase 1

Stephen Waguespack with LABI was on the show today to talk about how businesses performed after the first weekend of phase 1.  Stephen provides us with some of the feedback that he’s received from businesses throughout the state about the amount of business they received and whether or not they can survive phase 1 while only operating at 25% capacity.  Then, he discusses phase 2 and when we might move into that phase and what the determining factors for moving to phase 2 will be.  Waguespack explains the latest stimulus money, including when the state will receive it, what it will be used for, and how much of it is reserved for small businesses.  Finally, he talks about the legislative session and what bills are being debated and how much the Coronavirus has impacted how they operate.
