Pandemic Will Elicit Varied Responses from State and Local Governments
During the triage period of the COVID-19 crisis, we have seen vastly different responses from states and local governments. Some have injected significant dollars into employers through relief programs. Others have relied primarily on federal programs rather than using state/local dollars. Reopening the economy demands the confluence of business and government on many levels. Our clients seem anxious to return to an investment mode and undoubtedly all locales will be equally anxious to reduce unemployment.
