New COVID-19 bill extends contractor reimbursement, but no new funding | Defense News

COVID-19 has caused economic distress across the country. The new COVID-19 bill would call for contractors to get reimbursed, but there is no access to any new funding. Negations on the final deal are still happening and many are advocating for new funding. Defense officials have stated they need at least “$10 billion for defense contractors’ coronavirus-related expenses, as authorized by Section 3610 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.”
