Ron Hays talks about the challenge of Wuhan Virus here in America with Oklahoma Senator James Lankford

Wed, 01 Apr 2020 08:12:50 CDT

Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Oklahoma Senator James Lankford on Wednesday morning- discussing the days ahead that the United States faces in its battle against the Wuhan Virus- and talking about the two trillion dollar CARES package passed by the Senate and the House and then signed by President Trump.

The Senator said that if you had asked him about considering a two trillion dollar bill about anything a year ago- he would have said no way. Now, the bill is law- and is about half loans and half direct assistance to many segments of the economy- including money for farmers and ranchers. Lankford is hopeful that USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue will be able to use the flexibility given to him by Congress to identify segments of the farming and ranching business that most need the help that is in the CARES package.

The Senator mentioned that ag related businesses will be able to take advantage of the Small Business Administration programs that can help with payrolls as many companies have been foreced to shut down while waiting out the coronavirus this spring.

Senator Lankford closes the conversation with Hays as he shares a verse that reminds him where his source of power and strength comes from.
