Legislative Update on Covid-19 Relief Legislation Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 2:00pm EST Guest Webinar Presenter: Eben Wyman Principal, Wyman Associates Washington, D.C. NUCA is committed to providing our members as much information as we have regarding the national response to today’s coronavirus pandemic. There is obviously a lot going on, and several legislative measures are in play to provide assistance to medical/healthcare personnel, state and local governments, small businesses and their workers, and the American people at large. While the House is expected to close the deal on the proposed $2 trillion package passed by the Senate, more bills are in the works and infrastructure funding will be under consideration. The discussion of what comprises “essential workers” also continues in federal and state executive chambers. NUCA has been pushing to keep utility contractors front and center in that conversation. In this webinar, Eben Wyman and NUCA’s government relations team will provide updates on the information available and 14 DITCHMEN • MARCH 2020 answer questions to the best of their ability about Congress’ and the Administration’s response to this fast moving public health and economic crisis.
