Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"The third item is the STEP program, which is a small business export assistance program that works with States. The Federal Government and the Small Business Administration work with States to help them target businesses within their States that can use export assistance to become exporters. This is such an important issue for our country, because we, with a growing middle class around the globe, have a great opportunity to sell new products and services around the globe. But many of our small businesses are challenged by the risk of making those kinds of attempts to sell in those markets. So this export assistance program, which had been a pilot, is now going to be a funded permanent program. So we are excited about that and excited it is moving through."

"It ensures that we will have a better environment, and it ensures that every dollar a small business or manufacturer is spending on energy is used most efficiently. It makes us more competitive in this global economy we find ourselves in. That leads to more jobs, higher wages, all the things we should be doing in this Congress."
Small Business Saturday November 19, 2014
Janice Hahn, D-CA
"When we shop at a small business, almost half the money we spend stays in our community and supports local jobs."
Marketplace Fairness Act November 19, 2014
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"But the exemption already protects small businesses. Last year a Small Business Administration study determined that the small seller exemption included in the Marketplace Fairness Act would exempt 99.96 percent of all sellers from the bill’s requirements. So it is just the big ones that fall into this bill."
Federal Over-Regulation And The Case Of Country Meats November 14, 2014
Richard Nugent, R-FL
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to draw the collective attention of the House to an unfortunate case of federal over-regulation and the consequences to a small business in my district. In Ocala, Florida, we have a small family business that has produced and distributed snacks to schools across the country for more than three decades. Country Meats makes a pork-based snack that is common to student fundraisers and the proceeds of its sale in public schools over that time have netted more than $30 million in support of marching bands, athletic teams and academic clubs nation-wide."
