Rep. Angie Craig, D-Minn., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.

U.S. Rep. Angie Craig was lead sponsor of the successful push in Congress to extend a federal subsidy program for small businesses hurt by the coronavirus.

The House approved Craig's measure by voice vote on Wednesday, the day after it passed the Senate. President Donald Trump is expected to sign the measure, which extends the original June 30 application deadline for the Paycheck Protection Program to Aug. 8.

"The need is still there," Craig said. "A lot of these businesses have just been decimated."
