MAHWAH NJ, Frank Pallotta, Republican Candidate for New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District, made the following statement in response to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) running out of available funds after Democrats blocked a clean bill that would provide for a $250 billion replenishment:

“While the leader of his Party holds up legislation that has so far given 1.6 million small businesses an average of $207,000 to keep their workers employed, Josh Gottheimer should feel the pain, too. Until he can motivate Nancy Pelosi on behalf of our district to go back to Washington and make a deal, Josh should forgo his paycheck – just as millions in our district will be forced to do without the aid of this program.”
