>> AND I GOT A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT ARE PRIORITY FOR ME.

BECAUSE WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS FROM THIS VIRUS.

MOST OF THE EXPERTS ARE TELLING US THAT WE WILL SEE INCREASED AS WE START TO IF GATHER INDOORS MORE.

AS THE WEATHER CHANGES AND ALL THAT.

AND OUR ECONOMY WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE A PARKING BREAK ON THAT.

THAT WE RESOURCE COVARIANCE THAT OR BRING IT HOME TO A MEMBER OF THEIR FAMILY.

THAT IS OUR BIGGEST HURDLE.

WE ARE ALL WORKING TOWARD A VACCINE.

TO TRY TO RAISE TO A VACCINE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT WILL BE DISTRIBUTED OVERTIME.

THE DIRECTOR OF THE CDC SAID WE ARE TALKING ABOUT Q 2 OR 3 OF NEXT YEAR.

BEFORE DESCRIBE USE OF THAT.

THERE ARE COPS THAT KEPT THIS VIRUS IN CONTROL.

SOUTH KOREA.

AND I THINK WE CAN FOLLOW THAT MODEL AS WELL.

I THINK IT IS GOING TO SAVE A LOT OF LIVES.

200000 AMERICANS DEAD.

WE HAVE SEEN MILLIONS LOSS THEIR JOB.

AND WE RECOGNIZE THAT AND I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT WE ARE WORKING EXTREMELY HARD TO TRY AND GET THROUGH THIS CRISIS.

THAT THERE ARE FOLKS OF GOODWILL IN CONGRESS THAT ARE TRYING TO MAKE SURE WE COME INTO AGREEMENT.

I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION WITH YOU SPECIFIC WE ARE WORKING ON.

[00:05:08]

I WANT YOU TO KNOW WE ARE WORKING ON IT.

I HOPE BY THE END OF THE MONTH WE WILL HAVE SOMETHING.

>> THANK YOU.

NOW I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE VAN TAYLOR.

REPRESENTING THE THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF TEXAS.

>> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME AND APPRECIATE BEING WITHAL YOU OUT THERE AS WE A ADAPT TO THIS NEW WORLD.

AND WE ARE CRACKING A JOKE.

WE ARE DOING THIS BY ZOOM X.

WE ARE STILL SITTING DOWN AND INTERACTING I WILL HE CAN COVER A LOT OF THING THAT COLIN SAID.

WE ARE BOTH IN OUR FIRST TERM.

IF YOU TOLD US WE WOULD BE WALKING IN AND THERE WOULD BE A SHUTDOWN.

WITH A WORLDWIDE PANDEMIC.

AND EMCOMIC  AND CIVIL UNREST.

IT HAS BEEN AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCES.

EVERYONE AMERICAN HAS GONE THROUGH AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE.

AND I AM PROUD OUR COMMUNITY WAS ABLE TO RESPOND TO THIS.

AND STEPUP.

WE HAVE SEEN SOME INCREDIBLE CHALLENGES.

AND ON THE NOTE OF A PACKAGE.

I THINK WE NEED A PACKAGE.

WE ARE IN AGREEMENT ON THAT POINT.

WE ARE PROUD TO BE IN THE WORKING GROUP.

WITH THE PROBLEM SOLVERS.

25 DEMOCRATIC'S.

WE WORK TO CREATE A BIPARTISAN PACKET.

THAT WE ROLLED OUT.

AND WE GOT GOOD REVIEWS FROM PLACES LIKE THE WHITE HOUSE AND NEW YORK TIME.

LEFT AND SIGHT SAYING IT IS A GOOD IDEA.

IT CAME FROM THE WHAM.

REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS WORKING TOGETHER.

FAME WORK AS WE PUT FOR WHAT A NEW PACKAGE WOULD LOOK LIKE.

I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET THAT DONE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

I I THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO GET ONE DONE IN JULY.

I WAS HOPING SOMETHING NEGOTIATES IN AUGUST.

SEPTEMBER IS QUICKLY COMING TO A CLOSE.

I WILL SAY ONE THING THAT I HAVE SEEN.

IN HAVING AND BEING IN CONGRESS WAS A STATE LEGISLATURE FOR EIGHT YEARS.

I WORKED IN A VERY BIPARTISAN TIME.

I PASSED EIGHT BILLS.

IN CONGRESS IT IS AN EXCEPTION RATHER THAN A RULE WHEN SOMETHING GETS DONE.

I AM SURPRISED WE DO NOT SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER GETTING THINGS DONE.

ONE THING THAT HAS GIVEN ME PERSPECTIVE TALKING TO MY COLLEAGUES.

SEEING HOW MUCH WORSE OFF ECONOMICALLY AND AS WELL ON THE STATE AND SUB  CITY COUNTY FINANCES.

THAT WE SEE AS WE GO AROUND THE COUNTRY.

TEXAS IS CERTAINLY ON THE MEND.

OUR EMPLOYMENT HAS COME BACK IN A STRONG WAY.

I THINK IT IS CONTINUING TO GROW.

I THINK IT WILL CONTINUE TO GROW.

YOU LOOK AT PLACES LIKE NEW YORK STATE 16% UNEMPLOYMENT.

AND THEY HAVE SUFFERED VERY MIGHTILY.

AND THEIR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT WITH TREMENDOUS FISCAL HOLDS BEYOND ANYTHING THAT I HAVE HEARD OF IN THIS STATE.

PASH PAR TEXAS LED AMERICAN OUT OF THE 2008.

WE CREATED MORE JOBS.

2007 THROUGHÂ 14.

AND I THINK THAT WILL BE CLOSE TO WHAT HAPPENS OVER THE NEXT DECADE.

I THINK THAT TEXAS WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET.

WE STILL NEED TO WASH OUR HANDS SOCIALLY DISTANCE.

THOSE ARE ALL IMPORTANT THINGS.

THIS WILL BE A WHILE.

WHEN THIS DOES HAPPEN TEXAS WILL CONTINUE TO BE A LEADER.

I HEAR FROM BUSINESSES EVERYDAY.

THAT WANT TO MOVE FROM STATES THAT HAVE LOCK DOWN AND HIGH TAXES AND WITH A COME TO A PLACE LIKE TEXAS THAT DOES TO THOSE COMMONSENSE THING TO GOVERN.

>> THANK YOU BOTH.

YOU BOTH TOUCHED ON SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS ALREADY.

IF YOU COULD ELABORATE A LITTLE MORE.

FIRST QUESTION NATIONALLY APPROXIMATELY 11 MILLION AMERICANS ARE UNEMPLOYMENT.

1.8 ARE TEX ANS CAN YOU SHARE WHAT BILLS TO HELP THESE WORKERS I WILL START WITH CONGRESSMAN TAYLOR.

>> AGAIN YOU GOT TO TAKE CARE OF THE HEALTH PIECE.

[00:10:03]

THAT IS THE FIRST STEP.

THERE IS A LOT OF AGREEMENT THAT IS THE FIRST STEP.

AND WE ARE REOPENING.

YOU WANT TO REOPEN SAFETY AND INTELLIGENTLY.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO PUT PEOPLE AT RISK.

THEY ARE WORKING ON A CARE FOR PACKAGE THAT WILL BE IMPORTANT GETTING US THROUGH THIS ON ECONOMIC LEVEL.

THE HEALTH CARE PIECE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT.

OF WHAT WE ARE DOING.

CONGRESS WAS SMART APPROPRIATING $10Â MILLION LAST SPRING.

TO PAY FOR FIVE SEPARATE VACCINES TO NOT ONLY BE DEVELOPED AND MANUFACTURED AT SAME TIME.

THAT HAS NEVER BEEN DONE IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET.

ANOTHER THING I WILL POINT OUT.

I THINK WE SHOULD BE PROUD OF.

WE HAVE SEEN AN 85% REDUCTION IN THE MORTALITY OF THIS DISEASE.

THAT IS AN INCREDIBLE MEDICAL ACHIEVEMENT.

I THINK NOTHING LIKE THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE HISTORY OF A VIRUSES.

VIRUSES THERE IS NOT MUCH THAT YOU CAN DO.

WE HAVE HAD INCREDIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN ABILITY TO TREAT THIS DISEASE.

AND REDUCE ITS MORTALITY.

WHICH IN TURN MAKES IT SAFER TO DO WHAT WE ARE DOING.

WE ARE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET.

>> THANK YOU CONGRESSMAN.

>> I THINK THE FIRST THING WE HAVE TO DO.

NOT ADD TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT LIST.

AND WE ARE JUST A FEW WEEKS AWAY FROM SEEING OVER 100000 WORKERS ADDED TO OUR UNEMPLOYMENT ROLLS FROM THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY.

I JUST HAD A CALL TODAY WITH SOUTHWEST AIRLINES.

THEY ARE VERY  INSISTENT THAT WE HELP THEM GET THROUGH THIS.

I DO NOT FOE IF ANY AREA THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT.

BEING AN IMPORTANT DRIVERS FOR US.

THEY ARE LOOKING 30% OF THE TRAFFIC THAT HAD LAST YEAR AT THIS TIME.

AIRLINE TRAVEL.

AND THAT IS LEAVING OUT THERE.

THAT IS WHERE THEY WILL STAY.

THEY WILL NOT GO ABOVE THAT.

AND OBVIOUSLY FOR THAT INDUSTRY THEY CANNOT FUNCTION AT CONTINUING INTO THE FUTURE AT 30% CAPACITY.

SO THAT IS WHY WE REALLY HAVE TO BEET THIS VIRUS SO FOLKS CAN GET BACK TO THE CONFIDENCE TO GET ABLE TO FLY.

TO GET THEM THROUGH THIS HAS TO BE OUR PRIORITY.

ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS MOUNTAIN WHEN WE CLIMB THIS HILL.

WE WANT THESE AIRLINES THERE.

IF THEY HAVE TO MAKE DEEP CUTS.

TO THE TIME AND FLIGHTS AVAILABLE.

IT WILL SLOWDOWN OUR ECONOMIC RECOVERY ON THE OTHER SIDE.

IT MAKES COMMON SENSE TO SUPPORT THEM.

THERE ARE OTHER WORKERS WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO WORK BECAUSE OF PUBLIC HEALTH REASON.

EVEN AS OUR UNEMPLOYMENT COMING DOWN WE WILL HIT A FLOOR THERE WHERE WE CAN GET BENEATH IT.

THEY ARE SHUT FOR PUBLIC HEALTH REASONS.

BARS ANY PUBLIC VENUES.

FOR LIFE MUSIC OR HAVING PLAYS.

ANYTHING OF THE THING THAT WE ENJOY IN NORTH TEXAS.

AND WE NEED TO SUPPORT THOSE INDUSTRIES.

IT IS BIPARTISAN.

THAT I THINK WE NEED TO CONSIDER AND PASS.

TRY TO GET THEM THROUGH THIS PERIOD AS WELL.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE IT TOO MUCH.

IF ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS ATTRACTIONS THAT MAKE OUR TOUCHILY TEX A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE ARE NOT OPEN.

AND NOT ABLE TO GO IN AND ENJOY OUR LOCAL CULTURE AND THE AREAS WHERE YOU CAN HAVE A NICE NIGHT OUT WITH FAMILY.

WATCH A PLAY OR TAKEIN A MOVIE.

THOSE ARE THE THING THAT I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT ADD TO IT.

FOR THE UNEMPLOYMENT INSURE AN EXPANSION THAT WE PASSED AN THE CARES ACT.

WE TRY TO EXTEND THE HERO DOES ACT THIS WE PASSED IN MAY.

WE SHOULD HAVE AN SKIMMINGS OF THAT.

$300 ADDITIONAL COMING OUT OF THE EXECUTIVE ORDER WILL BE RUNNING OUT SOON THERE SHOULD BE SOME EXTENSION.

I DO NOT KNOW WHERE THE NUMBER WILL LAND.

THAT SHOULD BE PART OF THE NEGOTIATION.

MANY OF THOSE FOLKS PUSHED INTO UNEMPLOYMENT.

THEY ARE NOW NOT ABLE TO PAY THEIR RENT.

SOME OF OUR LARGE RENTAL FOLKS.

THAT WE ARE NOW APPROACHING THE NATIONAL AVERAGE FOR PEOPLE NOT ABLE TO PAY THEIR

[00:15:06]

RENT.

THAT HAS HUGE REPERCUSSIONS.

IF THEY CANNOT PAY THEN OF LANDLORDS STILL HAVE TO PAY THEIR MORTGAGES AND PAY THEIR FEES THAT THEY HAVE COMING IN.

PAL BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE MONEY COMING IN.

YOU CAN RHO NOT HAVE EVISION MORATORIUM.

IF YOU DO ONE OR THE OTHER YOU PUSH THE COST DOWN THE RODE.

SO WE NEED RENTAL ASSISTANCE AS WELL.

WE DID THAT IN THE HEROES CARE.

THAT SHOULD BE PART OF THE CARE ACT.

WE HAVE A LOT OF FOLKS WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE RENT.

NOT BEING KICKED OUT.

BUT THE COST ARE PILING UP.

WE HAVE THAT ON THE RETAIL SIDE AS WELL.

THERE IS A LOT OF WORK TO DO TO GET US THROUGH THIS.

WE SHOULD LOOK AT THIS AS WE ARE IN A BATTLE RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE IN THE WAR.

WE NEED TO GET THROUGH THIS PART OF IT.

AND THEN MAKE THE CONSIDERATIONS OF HOW DO WE RECOVER.

WHILE IN IT WE WANT TO LIMIT THE PAIN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

BOTH BECAUSE WE CAN.

BUT BECAUSE THE ECONOMIC HIT FOR US WILL BE MORE.

IF WE ALLOW THESE THINGS TO HAPPEN WITHOUT INTERVENTION.

>>: THANK YOU.

ON THE RESTRICTIONS SIDE.

RECENTLY GOVERNOR AND AT DECIDED TO LOOSEN SOME OF THE CORONA VIRUS ACTION.

HOW CAN BUSINESSES PARTNER WITH YOU TO HELP THEM THRIVE AND YOU  SBA EFFORTS.

HOPE ACTOR OTHER CURRENT FEDERAL RESOURCES.

GO AHEAD AND WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR YOUR RESPONSE.

CONGRESSMAN, ALLRED >> WE WILL BE GOING THROUGH THIS IN STAGES.

WHAT WE HAVE SEEN.

AND WE KNEW THIS PRETTY EARLY IN THE CRISIS.

IT WAS NOT GOING TO BE ONE CURVE.

IT WOULD BE LIKE A ROLLER COASTER.

UPANDDOWN.

PLACES HIT HARDER.

SOME PLACES HAVE FEW CASES OTHERS IN REAL CRISIS.

HERE IN DALLAS OVER THOUSAND CASES A DAY IN THE SUMMER.

WE ARE STILL SEEING A HIGH POSITIVITY RATE.

BUT IT IS COMING DOWN.

WE NEED POLICY TO SHIFT AND SHAPE WITH THE  WE NEED TO HAVE STAGES OF REOPENING THERE ARE THINGS THAT CANNOT REOPEN STILL.

AND I AGREE WITH THOSE DECISIONS IT IS ABOUT PUBLIC HEALTH THAT IS IMPORTANT.

BUT AS WE REOPEN AND AS WE UNDERSTAND WHAT THE CHALLENGE EARTHS ARE FOR OUR SMALL BUSINESSES IN PARTICULAR.

I THINK WE NEED TARGETED LEGISLATION TO HELP THEM.

TO GET THROUGH THIS.

AND TO HELP THEM KEEP THOSE FOLKS EMPLOYED.

AND KEEP THE MONEY FLOWING IN OUR ECONOMY.

SO YES I THINK THERE ARE SOME CHANGES WE NEED TO MAKE THE PP P PROGRAM.

BOTH OF US ARE CO SPONSORING LEGISLATION TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR REALLY SMALL ONES TO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL THE PAPERWORK.

IN TERM OF SMALL LOANS THEY RECEIVED.

AND DIFFICULTY OF DOING THAT.

BUT THERE ARE ALSO TARGETED THINGS WE NEED TO DON'T THERE ARE INDUSTRIES THAT ARE STILL PARTICULARLY HURT.

AND WHETHER IT IS THE SENATE VERSION OF SAFE OUR STAGES ACT.

I THINK SENATOR CORNIN AIMED AT OUR VENUES TO HELP THEM.

THERE IS THE HOPE ACT  I WILL LEAVE THAT FOR HIM.

BUT THESE ARE ALL TARGETS PIECED OF LEGISLATION FOR DIFFERENT TYPE OF SMALL BUSINESSES OR DIFFERENT TYPE OF OUR ECONOMY THAT HAVE BEEN HIT.

[00:20:13]

IS THAT IS WHAT WE ARE SEEING.

IT IS NOT THE ENTIRE ECONOMY.

SOME AREAS ARE DOING WELL.

WHETHER IT IS TECH.

WE HERE SPEAKING ON WEB X.

THAT IS DOING WELL IN TECH SPACE.

ABOUT OTHER CASES THAT HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED AND THOSE ARE THE AREAS I AM CONCERNED WITH.

>> I WILL JUST SAY YOU KNOW.

CERTAINLY MY OFFICE HAS BEEN WORKING VERY HARD AROUND THE CLOCK FROM THE BEGINNING OF THIS TO HELP LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES HELPING THEM WITH IDL LOANS.

PPE LOANS.

IN THE THIRD DISTRICT WE HAD 16000 PP LOAN UNDER 150000.

GOING TO SMALL BUSINESSES.

SO WE HAVE BEEN HELPING IN THAT FRONT.

WE HAVE BEEN HELPING BUSINESSES TRY TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY WANT TO DO TESTING.

HOW TO HELP INDIVIDUAL WITH HELPING.

AND EMPLOYMENT.

AND EMPLOYERS WITH THEIR EMPLOYMENT.

HELP AND THAT IS NOT A FEDERAL AGENCY.

BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE SAW A LOT OF NEED FOR.

SO WE STEPPED AND HELP PEOPLE GET THEIR EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS.

AND HELP EMPLOYERS WITH FURLOUGH PLAN AND BRING THEM BACK.

WE WORK LONG AND HARD.

IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS HAVING AN ISSUE.

WHETHER IT IS SPA OR GETTING AN E EYES DL LOAN.

WHATEVER IT MAY BE.

REACH OUT TO MY OFFICE.

WE ARE GETTING AN UPTICK IN  IMMIGRATION ISSUES THAT.

LET US KNOW WE ARE HERE TO HELP WORK THROUGH THOSE ISSUES TO HELP A BUSINESS BE SUCCESSFUL.

EVERY SINGLE CHECK THAT WE GET FOR SOMEONE THAT IS THE VABL TO MAKE A MORTGAGE PAYMENT.

TO MAKE RENT.

TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT I AM HERE TO HELP MY DISTRICT.

GET TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DURING THIS PANDEMIC.

SO THEY CAN GET THEIR BUSINESS THEIR FAMILY TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS AS WE REOPEN.

>>: THANK YOU CONGRESSMAN.

THE NEXT QUESTION.

BOTH TOUCHED ON.

THINK A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC AS WHAT THE QUESTION ENTAILED.

IT HAS BEEN WIDELY REPORTED THAT SENATE THE HOUSE ARE ABOUT A TRILLION APART.

TRUMP IS UP TO SUPPORTING.

WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE AMOUNT AND WHY.

>> SO IN.

PROBLEM SOLVERS.

WE ACTUALLY CREATED A WORKING GROUP TOWARD THE END OF JULY.

WHERE A PACKET WAS NOT COMING FORWARD.

WE HOPED THERE WAS A PACKET.

AND WE REALIZED WE ARE BEING SENT OUT OF TOWN OUT A PACKET.

WE NEED TO WORK ON SOMETHING.

AND WE ACTUALLY MET ALMOST EVERY OTHER DAY FOR ABOUT AN HOUR.

WENT OVER A TON OF STUFF.

WORKED ON IT REALLY HARD.

A LOT OF DISCUSSION A LOT OF GIVEANDTAKE.

AND WE COME WITHOUT WITH A PACKAGE THAT DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING IN IT.

IT WAS SOMETHING THAT WAS NEEDED.

THAT IS WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE IF  AND GAVE A FRAMEWORK.

AND YOU KNOW.

I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THE SPEAKER.

WHILE WE WERE ROLLING THE PACKET OUT.

WHERE TO STAY IN WASHINGTON.

KEEP CONGRESS OPEN UNTIL WE GET A PACKET TOGETHER.

ONE THING THAT I AM SURPRISED.

CONGRESS HAS ONLY BEEN IN  DAYS IT IS NOT A ENOUGH EFFORT BY US.

BUT I THINK YOU NEED TO PHYSICAL NEED TO BE MANY WASHINGTON TO WORK THINGS OUT.

IT IS HARD TO DO THING REMOTELY.

IT IS DIFFICULT THERE IS A PATH FORWARD.

THE PROBLEM SOLVER PACKAGE HAS BEEN ENDORSED.

THIS SHOWS THERE IS A PACKAGE THAT CAN BE PUT TOGETHER.

ONE FEATURE.

IT HAS REDUCERS, AND BOOSTERS.

IF INFECTION LEVEL DROP.

IT SPENDS LESS.

IF IT WAS STILL REMAIN PERSISTENTLY DIFFICULT THEN IT ACTUALLY WENT UP.

ALMOST $500Â BILLION.

THE IDEA THAT YOU HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS FLEXIBLE.

SO CONGRESS DID NOT HAVE TO COME BACK AND REVOTE.

TO SPEED IT UP OR SLOW IT DOWN.

WE THOUGHT THAT WAS A FLEXIBLE WAY OF DOING.

IT SATISFIED SOME OF US.

[00:25:01]

WE ARE SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY OR NOT ENOUGH.

IF IT IS BAD WE WILL SPEND MORE IF LESS WE WILL SPEND LESS.

THAT IS A FEATURE WE DID.

PROUD TO STANDUP TO WORK ON A BIPARTISAN BASIS.

>>: THANK YOU.

>> YOU KNOW I AM FAN OF THE STABILIZED APPROACH THE PROBLEM SOLVERS THE PACKAGE THEY RECOMMENDED.

PUT FORTH THIS IDEA HAVE AUTOMATIC STABILIZER THAT DO NOT HAVE TO ALWAYS BE RESISTED BY CONGRESS.

WE ARE SEEING IT IS NOT  ALWAYS TO HAVE ANOTHER VOTE.

WHEN YOU CAN HAVE STABILIZER TICK IN.

TO DEAL WITH THE FACTS ON THE GROUND AND HOW THINGS ARE LOOKING.

BUT WE DID PASS THE HEROES ACTS IN MAY.

AND I THINK THAT WAS AN OPENING PART OF THE NEGOTIATION AT THE TIME.

THEY WERE GOING TO TAKE A PAUSE AND SEE HOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THE COUNTRY AND SEE WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS A NEED FOR ANOTHER PACKET.

NOW WE PASSED 200000 AMERICAN DEAD.

WE ARE SEEING OUR ECONOMY RECOVERING.

WE WILL NOT GET TO A CERTAIN POINT IF WE DO NOT SEES VIRUS.

IT DEPENDS ON THE TIMEFRAME.

IF WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AID TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR OR THROUGH THE NEXT YEAR.

I FINE WITH US LOWERING THE TIMEFRAME HAVING EXTEND ERRAND STABILIZER IN THE PACKAGE BUT TO LEAVE THE FLEXIBLE TO MEET THE CRISIS.

THAT IS FINE.

WHAT WE NEED TO DO NOW AS VAN SAID WE NEED TO STAY HERE UNTIL WE GET A DEAL.

AND WE HAVE TO NEGOTIATE UNTIL WE GET A DEAL.

THERE ARE SOMETHING THING THAT WE NEED FROM NORTH TEXAS IN PARTICULAR.

THAT MUST BE IN THIS DEAL.

WE HAVE TO HELP.

WE WOULD BE MAYBE OTHER THAN ATLANTA THE CITY MOST IMPACTED.

WE ARE SEEING OUR SCHOOLS REOPEN NOW.

IN THE HEROES ACT WE HAVE 57 BILLION FOR K THROUGHÂ 12.

THOSE SCHOOLS ARE TAKING PRECAUTIONS.

THEY HAVE STICKERS ON THE WALLED.

THEY ARE HANDING OUT MASK AND HAND SANITIZER.

THAT WAS NOT PART OF THEIR BUDGET.

WE HAVE ALREADY SEEN 500 EMPLOYEES BEING FURLOUGHED THEY WILL HAVE TO MAKE ADDITIONAL CUTS BECAUSE OF HUGE SHORTFALLS IN REVENUE.

AS VAN KNOWS THEY WILL HAVE TO MAKE SOME TOUGH DECISION IN THE NEXT SESSION ABOUT THE BUDGET.

WHETHER IT IS REACHING INTO THE RAINY DAY FUND OR NOT.

I DO NOT KNOW.

THEY WILL SEE ENORMOUS SHORTFALLS.

WE HAVE NOT BEEN AS IMPACTED AS NEW YORK.

BUT WE HAVE BEEN IMPACTED WE SHOULD SUPPORT THE STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

THEY CANNOT GO INTO THE RED.

THEY NEED A BALANCED BUDGET.

THIS IS OUTSIDE OF THE SCOPE THAT THEY HAVE HANDLE INDIVIDUALLY.

THERE ARE A LOT OF JOBS.

THAT ARE LOSS OR ENDANGER OF STATE OR LOCAL EMPLOYEES.

WHILE YOU MAY THINK WHAT ARE THEY DOING.

THEY WILL BE ADDED TO THE UNEMPLOYMENT ROLLS.

AND SERVICES WILL BE REDUCED.

IT WILL REACHED INTO FIRE AND EDUCATION AND POLICE DEPARTMENTS.

IT WILL REACH INTO BUDGETED THAT SHOULD NOT BE CUT.

SO THOSE ARE THINGS THAT WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE TAKE CARE OF.

THE BIGGEST THING HERE YOU HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO ADVANCE AS GETTING THING THAT YOU WANT.

BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE PEOPLE OF NORTH TEXAS EXPECT US TO REACH SOME KIND OF AGREEMENT.

TO PASS SOMETHING THAT WILL GET US THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR.

THERE IS STILL ENORMOUS AND PAIN OUT THERE.

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE STRUGGLING WHO DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY WILL DO AND ARE WAITING FOR ACTION ON CONGRESS WAITING ON US TO DOING.

WHERE HE HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO DO THAT.

I DO NOT WANT TO HEAR FROM MY SIDE OR THE OTHER SIDE THINGS THAT WE MUST HAVE.

WE NEED TO FIND AN AGREEMENT.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE EXPECT IT.

THAT IS WHY THEY SENT US TO CONGRESS TO DO THESE THINGS.

I AM CONSCIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC THAT WE ARE MOVING IN THAT DIRECTION.

BASED ON WHAT YOU SAID THE PRESIDENT WANTED TO RAISE THE NUMBER.

I AM HEARING THAT THROUGH SOME OTHER FOLKS.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS MOVING IN TERM OF WHERE THEY WANT TO END UP.

IN THAT IS TRUE, I AM SURE WE WILL END UP WITH SOMETHING.

[00:30:02]

WASHINGTON DOES LOVE A DEADLINE.

AND THE END OF THIS MONTH IS A DEADLINE FOR US.

>>: THANK YOU.

SHIFTING GEARS TO SOMETHING THAT TAYLOR MENTIONED EARLIER.

TEXAS HAS THE HIGHEST.

 FRIENDS RESPONDERS EDUCATORS STUDENTS AND WORKERS.

PAY OVER 3 BILLION.

THEY ARE NOT A PERMANENT RESOLUTION.

THAT IMPACTED OUR WORKFORCE.

CONGRESSMAN ALLRED, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN FIXES DACA.

>> YES NEED A LEGISLATIVE SOLUTION.

WE PASSED THE DREAM ACT  FOR OUR DREAMERS.

AND I COULD NOT HAVE SAID IT BETTER.

HOW YOU PUT IT.

IN TERMS OF EVAC ECONOMIC IMPACT.

THESE FOLKS ARE EVERY BIT AMERICAN AS YOU AND I ARE.

WHO DO NOT HAVE THE DOCUMENT.

FOLKS CONTRIBUTED IN OUR ECONOMY.

SERVICE IN OUR MILITARY.

TEACHING IN OUR SCHOOLS.

WE JUST TALKED TO D I SD THE IMPACT THEY WOULD HAVE.

TO LOSS.

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR MORE BILINGUAL TEACHERS.

TO LOSS THE DREAMERS WOULD CAUSE THEM TO HAVE MORE TROUBLE WITH THAT.

THIS IS MING IS OF A VALUE STATEMENT FOR US.

THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO CONTRIBUTE TO OUR COUNTRY.

WHO ARE DOING AND SEE THEM SELF AS AMERICANS.

PAL WE SHOULD FIND A WAY TO MAKE THAT WORK.

WE HAVE PASSED THAT UP BY THE HOUSE.

I DO NOT THINK THIS PRESIDENT WOULD SIGN IT.

PI WAS PRAT TO BE A CO SPONSOR OF THOSE THINGS.

WE SHOULD ALSO HAVE IN MY OPINION A COMPREHENSIVE REFORM.

TO BRING MORE IN LINE WITH OUR VALUES TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR ECONOMY.

I CAN'T TALK TO AN EMPLOYER ABOUT HEARING ABOUT THEIR WORKFORCE NEED AND SHORTAGES BEFORE THIS PANDEMIC.

AND I THINK WE DO HAVE A SERIOUS NEED WE WANT TO SEE FILLED.

AND IMMIGRATION SYSTEM THAT HELPS US WITH THAT.

AND SO THAT IS GOING TO REQUIRE A FUNDAMENTAL AND COMPREHENSIVE REFORM SOMETHING THAT WE SUCK TACKLE.

SOMETHING THAT WE SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID OF THE BIG ISSUES.

AND WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE.

AND AT SOME POINT I HOPE WE CAN.

>>: THANK YOU.

>> WHEN I FIRST CAME  FAMILY FIRST CAME TO TEXAS.

AND WHEN WE BECOME A STATE.

WE HAD OUR FIRST CENSUS.

THERE WERE OVER 230 THOUSAND IN THE STATE OF TEXAS.

THEY WERE NOT ALL BORN HERE.

THEY CAME HERE TO CARVE OUT THEIR DREAMS AND THAT IS CONTINUED.

WE CONTINUE TO HAVE IMMIGRATION INTO TEXAS YOU KNOW AND TEXAS IS GROWN MUCH FASTER.

BECAUSE WE HAVE PEOPLE COMING HERE TO CARVE OUT OUR DREAMS. WE ARE BUILDING BUSINESSES.

AND THAT IS A GREAT THING.

CONGRESS FAILED AT OF FIXING OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM.

WE HAVE AN IMMIGRATION SYSTEM WHICH IS UNFAIR TO THE TAXPAYER.

UNFAIR TO THE EMPLOYER.

IF YOU WANT TO DO IT LEGALLY AND RIGHT.

IT IS UNFAIR TO THE IMMIGRANTS THEMSELVES.

SOME OF THEM FIND THEMSELVES ILLEGAL.

AS THE DACA REPENTS DO.

WE ALL WANT TO SEE A COMPREHENSIVE REFORM PACKAGE.

IN MY OWN MIND I WOULD THINK YOU NEED TO BRAKE THAT UP IN SMALLER PIECES.

AND PASS THEM ONE BY ONE.

WE UNFORTUNATELY COLIN AND OPERATE SLOWDOWN IN THE ABILITY TO GET THINGS DONE.

IN THE HUNDREDTH CONGRESS.

THE '87, '88, 80% OF ALL BILLS WERE MADE LAW.

IN THE CONGRESS WE ARE IN IS ABOUT 1%.

IT REALLY REALLY DROPPED OVER THE 30Â YEARS WE ARE MUCH LESS EFFECTIVE LEGISLATIVE PROCESS.

HARDER TO GET BASIC THINGS DONE.

WE NEVER VOTED ON A BUDGET.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE.

AND IT IS NOT EVEN REMARKABLE.

IN CONGRESS THEY DO NOT THINK ABOUT.

ONE DOESN'T BASS.

THEY HAVE NOT PASSED ON TIME IN 2020Â YEARS.

MOST PEOPLE SERVING CANNOT HAD REMEMBER GETTING A BUDGET DONE ON TIME.

IMMIGRATION I WOULD CERTAINLY SEEK TO REACH ACROSS THE AISLE AND FIND

[00:35:02]

SOMETHING THAT WOULD SOLVE THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM.

AND HELP EVERYONE INVOLVED.

>> THANK YOU BOTH GENTLEMAN.

WE ARE COMING UP TWO MINUTES.

I WILL GIVE EACH ONE OF YOU A FEW MINUTES TO CLOSE OUT.

AND WE WILL CLOSE OUT FOR THE DAY.

I WILL START OUT WITH CONGRESSMAN TAYLOR.

>> NOW I THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING US.

AND COLIN ALWAYS GOOD TO BE ON WITH YOU.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW LITTLE ONE.

ANOTHER AULD RED ON THE WAY.

IT IS  WE LIVE IN AN AMAZING PLACE.

I THINK THAT YOU KNOW THE NEXT DECADE OF TEXAS STORY IS GOING TO BE A STORY OF A LOT OF BUSINESSES MOVING FROM OTHER STATES THAT HAVE BEEN HAMMERED REALLY HARD NOT JUST BY TAXED AND REGULATION AND LITIGATION THEY HAD TO GO THROUGH.

BUT THERE JUST THE SHUTDOWN ORDER AND EM ECONOMIC DAMAGES.

TO THEIR SMALL BUSINESS COMMUNITY.

YOU WILL SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE COMING PARTICULAR TO NORTH TEXAS.

YOU WILL SEE THIS TO BE A DESTINATION PLACE.

I AM TALKING TO CEO I CANNOT TAKE IT ANYMORE.

WHEREVER THEY ARE.

I AM COMING TO TEXAS.

WHAT CAN I DO.

I FEEL OPTIMISTIC ABOUT THE FUTURE.

AT THE SAME TIME I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE NEAR TERM.

WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO WASH OUR HANDS SOCIAL DISTANCE.

WE NEED TO TAKE THIS VIRUS SERIOUS.

IT IS FAR FROM OVER.

I SEE GOOD THINGS ON THE HORIZON.

IT WILL BE A LOT OF WORK.

EXCITED FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE YOU AS WE GO THROUGH THIS EVENT AND TO GET TO THE OTHER SIDE.

I EXPECT THERE TO BE GREAT THINGS ON THE OTHER SIDE.

PROUD TO SERVE YOU AND THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE TO HELP BUILDUP NORTH TEXAS.

THIS HAS BEEN THE MOST DIFFICULT TIME TO BE IN A BUSINESS.

THIS IS REALLY BEEN A TRULY TRULY CHALLENGES TIME.

AND I AM INCREDIBLY PROUD HOW SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE RESPONDED.

THANK YOU SO MANY FOR STEPPING UP AND SERVING AND LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS.

AT THE END OF THE DAY WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER.

>>: THANK YOU CONGRESS TAYLOR.

>> THANK YOU SO MUCH VAN.

I APPRECIATE YOU MAN.

AND IT IS GOOD TO DO THESE EVENTS TOGETHER.

I HOPE WHEN PEOPLE WATCH US TOGETHER WE HAVE DONE A NUMBER OF THESE CAN SEE THERE IS COMMON GROUND TO BE FOUND.

AND WE HAVE TO FIND THAT COMMON GROUND.

PEOPLE EXPECT THAT FROM US.

CONGRESS WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE IF IT FOLLOWED OUR EXAMPLE.

THERE IS SOME GOOD NEWS TODAY.

THE HIGH SPEED TRAIN BETWEEN DALLAS AND HOUSTON CLEARED ALL FEDERAL HURDLES.

THIS IS A HIGH SPEED TRAIN CORRECTING US BY 90MINUTE TRAIN RIDE.

IT HAS ENORMOUS ECONOMIC IMPLICATIONS.

YOU COULD COMMUTE.

I DO NOT KNOW WHO WANT TO COMMUNE HUFFED  IT WILL TAKE A LOT OF CAR OFF THE ROAD.

AND SO IT WOULD PROVIDE ANOTHER OPTION THERE.

AND I THINK IT WOULD BE A MODEL THAT PEOPLE WOULD ENJOY AND I THINK YOU WOULD SEE MORE HIGH SPEED PROJECTS.

CONNECTING DALLAS AND AUSTIN.

CREATING A HIGH SPEED CORRIDOR.

THAT IS MING THAT I LEAD.

VAN JOINED ME ON THAT AND I AM GLAD TO SEE IT CLEAR ALL ITS FEDERAL HURDLES.

THAT WILL BE A BIG ECONOMIC ENGINE FOR US.

NORTH TEXAS IT BECOMING A DESTINATION FOR BUSINESSES AROUND THE COUNTRY.

WE OF COURSE HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR SMALL BUSINESSES AT HOME.

THAT HAS BEEN MY BIGGEST CONCERN.

NOT THE MOST SOPHISTICATED OUT THERE WHO ALREADY HAD ACCESS TO CREDIT.

WHO DID AND KNEW HOW TO GO ABOUT TO FIND THE ECONOMIC TOOLS TO GET STLU THIS.

[00:40:10]

THE SMALL BUSINESS THIS THE FIRST TIME THEY HAD TO DO THIS.

UNIMAGINABLE COMPLIANCE TO PROVE THEY HAVE USED THE MONEY THEY TOOK LEGALLY AND EFFECTIVELY.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE CONTINUE TO ADJUST THE PPE PROGRAM.

SO IT WORKS FOR OUR SMALLEST PROGRAMS. ANYONE WHO IS CONSIDERING CAN CON TACTUS MY OFFICE.

OUR CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAVE BEEN INCREDIBLE THROUGH THIS CRISIS.

HELPING US SPREAD INFORMATION.

AND ANSWERING A LOT OF QUESTIONS.

BEING RESOURCE CENTER.

THANK YOU AS VAN SAID.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND FOR BEING THE RESOURCES THAT I KNOW YOU ARE.

DURING THIS INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT TIME.

I WILL CONTINUE TO WORK ON BEHAVE OF OUR SMALL BUSINESS AND COMMUNITY ON BEHALF OF NEXT TEXAS.

I WAS PROUD TO BE ENDORSED BY THE US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

GIVING THEIR SPIRIT A WHERE'D ON THE US  THAT WOULD NOT HAVE PASSED.

FOR US PUSHES FOR IT TO PASS.

WE ARE THE NUMBER ONE TRADE STATE IN THE COUNTRY.

AND THE NUMBER ONE STRAYED STATE WITH MEXICO.

AND NUMBER TWO WITH CANADA.

THEY GAVE ME A 95% RATING FOR MY WORK IN CONGRESS.

HI AM PROUD OF THAT.

THIS IS A TIME FOR FOLKS TO TRY TO GET THINGS DONE.

EVEN WITH THE TEMPERATURE GOING UP EVERYDAY IN DC.

SO WE GOT A LOT FACING US AS A COUNTRY.

WE ARE APPROACHING A VERY IMPORTANT BUT ALWAYS PROBABLY MORE SO DIVISIVE ELECTION.

AS LONG AS I HAVE THE HONOR OF SERVING NORTH TEX TERM I WILL FIND THAT COMMON GROUND AND DELIVER RESULTED.

WE COULD NOT HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS OUT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.

FOR BEING THE RESOURCES THAT YOU HAVE BEEN.

FOR HELPING US UNDERSTAND WHAT IS NOT WORKING IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK.

I KNOW MY OFFICE IS HERE TO HELP AND VAN'S AS WELL.

REACH OUT FOR ANYTHING FOR US TO BE HELP YOU WILL.

>> THANK YOU BOTH CONGRESSMAN ALLRED AND CONGRESSMAN TAYLOR.

YOU HAVE MADE MY JOB EASY.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US ON THIS STRAIGHT TALK VIRTUAL SERIES.
