After her stop there, she delivered remarks regarding the current administration’s impact on small businesses and communities within the Magnolia State.
“We know that part of why that is important is, of course, the subject today: Small businesses need to reach their customers. They need to buy supplies, even run their cash register. And all of that will be helped by having access to high-speed Internet,” Harris said during the speech. “And so, we are fighting every day to ensure that small businesses have access to capital and the banking services they need to thrive. And that is why we are all here today.”
According to the White House, Harris has been traveling across the nation meeting with small business owners to discuss the problems they face. To read Harris’ full speech, click here.
