Write your senator

The vast majority of local newsrooms, including the Idaho Statesman, remain ineligible for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) designed to help businesses through the coronavirus pandemic. A bipartisan bill before the Senate would remove that restriction. Write to your senator and tell them to support the information needs of their community.
