uscoc-logo.jpgOceanside Chamber Signs Coalition Letter on COVID-19 Liability Protections
The Oceanside Chamber has signed onto the US Chamber of Commerce's coalition letter urging Congress to include liability protections in the next COVID-19 relief package.  The letter, which was signed by hundreds of chambers and business organizations from around the country, was sent to members of Congress and reads as follows...
