Washington, D.C. -- Today, Rep. Ted Budd introduced the Save Our Servers Act

The bill withholds certain federal funds from states and localities who shut down indoor or outdoor dining at restaurants. These jurisdictions can only have the federal funds restored when they rescind all shutdown orders. 

Rep. Budd released the following statement:

“Given the fact that dining at restaurants accounts for less than 2 percent of COVID-19 infections, the restaurant restrictions we see in cities across our country are completely arbitrary and devastating to the lives of thousands of servers and food service workers. It’s time that we tell these oppressive governors and mayors to reverse course, allow these restaurants to safely operate, and help servers make a living again.”
