Detroit Regional Chamber Statement On Latest ‘Pause To Save Lives’ Update

Detroit Regional Chamber President and CEO Sandy K. Baruah issued the following statement regarding updates to the Pause to Save Lives provided by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in a press conference Friday, Dec. 28:

“The Chamber applauds the Governor and our legislative leadership in agreeing to move forward financial relief for Michigan businesses and individuals. Today’s announcement is the type of bipartisan cooperation the Chamber, and Michigan voters, according to our latest poll, have been anxious to see.

We are also gratified that movie theaters, casinos, and other businesses are able to open up for the holiday season. The remaining restrictions do, however, continue to threaten the vitality of indoor dining establishments that are critical to communities across the state.

Today’s action in Michigan can serve as an example to our leaders in Washington who have still not fulfilled their responsibilities to enact bipartisan COVID-19 relief legislation that the nation still awaits.”
