Dean Mon, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder and developer from Shrewsbury, N.J., issued the following statement regarding the Senate passage of the Family First Coronavirus Response Act:

“NAHB commends the Senate for acting quickly to help combat the coronavirus pandemic by approving paid and sick family leave for Americans who are testing for COVID-19 or suffering from the virus. The legislation also includes important tax credits to help employers and self-employed individuals defer added costs related to these mandates. The job is not finished. This outbreak is quickly spreading to all sectors of the economy. Congress needs to begin work on a future aid package that addresses the needs of the nation’s small business community, including the housing sector.”
