“A million may seem like a lot, but when you’ve got warehousing, logistics, you name it, a million is not a lot of money,” he said. “One million just keeps your doors open.”

Coon said he’s aware of these types of concerns.

“There’s a revenue-based small business exemption in the bill,” he said.

He said a provision in the legislation also requires any state implementing it to offer free software to help businesses adjust.
