In the midst of a global pandemic and the highest unemployment rates the United States has seen since 1933, President Trump signed into law the $2 trillion dollar Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”), providing economic relief to businesses, States and municipalities, and individuals affected by COVID-19.
