Pass SB 109 and Support Lancaster Restaurants, Venues and Arts Destinations
To The PA House:
We the undersigned restaurant and arts and entertainment venue owners and supporters of Lancaster County would like to express our support and gratitude to you for introducing a package of bills (SB 109) to help businesses that have been negatively affected by COVID-19. As you know, the arts, entertainment and food industries have attracted hundreds of thousands of tourists to Lancaster County and created an arts and culinary scene that rival those of much larger cities. Without our industry, both the city and county could lose its distinctive appeal and twenty years of economic recovery could be erased.
While entrepreneurs here have been exceedingly creative at making ends meet during unprecedented times, we are operating at dangerously low capacity and need our elected officials to come through for us in meaningful ways. The package of bills, if it remains intact, has the power to stabilize our industry and keep Lancaster vibrant for years to come.
With that in mind we ask that you and your colleagues from every part of the state, regardless of party affiliation, commit to working in a bipartisan manner to achieve these goals. The best chance we have is if Republicans and Democrats put aside their differences and work together for the betterment of all Pennsylvania businesses. Now is the time to see what can happen when we truly embrace the idea that we’re all in this together.
We are happy to use our voice to support your legislation and your efforts on behalf of small businesses. Please reach out to us here for any inquiries or requests.
