RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine answered questions about the coronavirus outbreak in Spanish prior to tonight’s virtual town hall.
The senator answered three questions for the local Spanish-speaking community and has previously participated in other Spanish-language forums.
8News asked the senator:
- What is the latest on testing and help from the federal government to make more testing available?
- Are there any plans to start a COVID-19 relief fund for undocumented workers? And why can’t people with a Tax ID, and who pay taxes, qualify for a stimulus check?
- Can you explain what small business loan programs mean for latino-owned stores?
