Way to prioritize Rep. Nadler and Rep. Maloney. We are told that the Democrat Party is the party of the middle class. What a joke! Rational American voters must make the Democrats pay in November. #GOP2020

Reps call for aid for nonprofit museums hit hard by the Coronavirus crisis

By QNS, March 25, 2020:

Several New York representatives called for a boost to the nonprofit museum industry as its funding streams dry up and its doors remained closed.

New York state representatives including Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) and Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) sent a request to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Saturday for “at least” $4 billion in federal assistance to be included for the nonprofit museum industry in the next coronavirus recovery package.

The details of the stimulus package, which passed through the U.S. Senate early Wednesday morning, have yet to be released.

New York museums voluntarily closed their doors in response to the growing pandemic on March 12. The Center for Disease Control urged gatherings of 50 or more people to cancel or postpone for the next two months on March 15.

The next day President Donald J. Trump recommended that gatherings be kept to 10 people or less to help curb the growing numbers of transmission seen with the COVID-19 virus globally.

Museums nationwide followed in suit and shuttered their doors indefinitely, despite 65 percent of their income flowing from patronage.
