It was announced over the evening that both parties had come to an agreement regarding the CARES Act for Covid19 relief.   There is a ton in the bill, but a relatively small section is devoted to SBA financing support for impacted businesses.  
The new FFCRA which was signed into law March 18th, 2020 contains two separate laws, the (1) Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (“EFMLEA”) and (2) Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (“EPSLA”), that impose paid family and sick leave obligations on employers with fewer than 500 employees.  The Act will go into effect no later than 15 days after the enactment of the FFCRA (April 2, 2020) and the Act will expire on December 31, 2020.
