|Subject:||Small Business Insurance Relief Due To COVID-19|
|COVID-19 is hurting small businesses and their employees throughout this Commonwealth. Many of these small businesses have purchased a form of insurance known as business interruption insurance, which is designed to protect businesses from losses of income due to an interruption.
Many of these business interruption insurance policies are not covering interruptions which are due to COVID-19. However, this disease has undoubtedly interrupted business as usual.

It’s important that we all stand together during these tough times and support our neighbors and businesses. I hope that you will join me in supporting Pennsylvania’s small businesses by sponsoring this legislation.
Introduced as HB2372
