U.S. Sen. Todd Young made a visit to the Slippery Noodle Inn on Tuesday to listen to music venue owners talk about financial hardships related to the coronavirus pandemic.
HI-FI President and Indiana Independent Venue Alliance founder Josh Baker was one of a few venue owners who met with Sen. Todd Young to discuss his proposed RESTART Act, which extends the Paycheck Protection Program for certain businesses and establishes a Small Business Administration loan program for businesses with up to 5,000 full-time employees.
“Small businesses are lifebloods of our economy,” Young told the Indianapolis venue owners. “Our art scene is particularly important to our culture, and you can’t just reconstitute these very unique businesses.”
