On Thursday, May 21, 2020, the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) hosted a webinar, featuring a distinguished panel of professionals, including former Speaker of the US House of Representatives John Boehner, as well as the current senior US Senator from West Virginia, Joe Manchin, who shared their thoughts on how best to safely and gradually re-open business across America.

In addition, they provided first-hand insight and guidance regarding the existing stabilization programs (e.g., CARES Act, Main Street Lending, PPP), the important role that US Treasury is playing during the pandemic, and the most recent flurry of funding initiatives, including the US$3 trillion HEROES Act, proposed in Congress in an effort to manage the far reaching effects of the COVID-19 crisis.

Our panel was moderated by Stephen Lerner, Squire Patton Boggs, Cincinnati, Ohio.
