CARES Act provides help to businesses - Here's how to see if it works for you

CARES Act provides help to businesses - Here's how to see if it works for you

  President Trump signed into law last week the 2.2 Trillion dollar Coronavirus Aid Relief and Security Act (CARES) which provides government assistance for businesses and individuals facing financial hardship from the COVID-19 Pandemic. The assistance for small businesses largely comes in two forms: Approximately 350 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) which provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses and; Emergency Grants under the Economic Industry Disaster Loan Program (EIDL). The first program provides loans of up to $10 million per employer based upon historic payroll numbers.  The program is available to corporations and independent contractors, sole proprietors and the self-employed.  The funds can be used to fund payroll costs for 8 weeks after loan origination as well as ...   [read more]

California's Cloverdale Citrus Fair: Beautiful Weather Leads to Stellar Turn Out

California's Cloverdale Citrus Fair: Beautiful Weather Leads to Stellar Turn Out

  Katie Young, CEO of the Cloverdale Citrus Fair is delighted to report that this year's February fair was a big success. The fair ran February 14-17.“We had beautiful whether – and when you have a fair in February, it's always nice to have four sunny days. As we do every year, we had a parade through downtown Cloverdale on the opening day, after which, people come to the fair. We had a sold-out cabaret show for three nights, which included dinner. We also held a queen scholarship program pageant, and of course, we had a great carnival.”Butler Amusements operated the carnival for its 42nd year at the fair. It was also the  carnival company's 50th in operation. The family-owned company cited the Rock Star and Freak Out as top draws, with the bright LED lights of both bringing large crowds when dusk fell. Young ...   [read more]

UPDATED: H-2B Rule for 35,000 Supplemental Visas On Hold

DHS temporarily reverses decision on supplemental visa release

  Amid the COVID-19 crisis that virtually shut down the entire country, many have forgotten about one of the carnival industry's other concerns, the H-2B labor crisis.  After months of pleading the Department of Homeland Security for supplemental visas to be released, on March 5, 2020 the DHS committed to releasing 35,000 additional visas in two batches.  Unfortunately, once the Coronavirus pandemic hit, much of DHS' focus was put on the crisis at hand, not the release of additional H-2B visas.  Some worried if it would even happen amidst the crisis.  On March 25, the additional H-2B visa rule for the supplemental visas was submitted to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs for review.  This rule contains the guidelines for filing and worker eligibility.  Once the rule is published, capped out employers will be able to file for the visas.  On April 2, Fox News Tucker Carlson criticized the Trump administration and the DHS for releasing ...   [read more]

  On March 24, 2020, Senator Roy Blunt (R-Missouri) addressed federal relief and the impact COVID-19 has had on festivals and fairs.  Senator Blunt is the 4th ranked Representative in the Senate. "We're about to get to the season of the year where people have community festivals and fairs.  The Missouri State Fair, the Ozark Empire Fair, the Carnivals that occur in our state (of Missouri),  the 6-10 month travel destinations like Silver Dollar City, Six Flags, or Worlds of Fun.  If you lose part of that season, that part of the season is lost and you're not going to get that May, June, or April back.  You're not going to tack it on at the end by saying we will just be open in January to make up for the people that would have been at our theme park in June," said Blunt.   Blunt expressed the need to provide federal funding for the industry in part four of the relief package.You can view Blunt's speech in its entirety below (courtesy of the ...   [read more]
