Payroll Protection Program Updates – Changes to Expense Deductions, New Funding, Expansion of ERC Credit, COVID Leaves and More
On Sunday, December 27th, President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (the “Act”) which enacts many important changes to the Payroll Protection Program (“PPP”). Key changes brought about by the Act include:
- Families First Coronavirus Response Act Leave Mandate Expires December 31, 2020, but Tax Credits Continue: The Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion mandate expires December 31, 2020. After December 31, 2020, employers with fewer than 500 employees will no longer be required to provide paid leave to employees for COVID-19 related reasons.
May you live in interesting times.
Are they done counting yet? (No!) Good to see that Arizona voters (and vote counters) continue to know how to weave a dramatic story full of twists and surprises. Arizona now has two Democratic US Senators, but kept the State Legislature Republican – with or without Senator McGee: still counting….

Legal Alert: Arizona Supreme Court Mandates Medical Marijuana License in Every County, Affirms Importance of Patient Access
Last Thursday, the Arizona Supreme Court in Saguaro Healing LLC v. State of Arizona held that the Arizona Department of Health Services (“AZDHS”) must issue at least one medical marijuana dispensary certificate in each county, in accordance with the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act (“AMMA”).
The Court’s opinion interpreted the AMMA’s language to require a minimum, not a maximum, number of medical marijuana dispensaries within the state and in each county. In doing so, the Court furthered one of the AMMA’s intended purposes—to ensure that patients throughout Arizona have access to a medical marijuana dispensary.
