Entry Title Date
To Honor The Life And Legacy Of Edna Lanier May 13, 2016
Richard Hudson, R-NC
"Mrs. Lanier was also a small business owner and a prominent member of the Lexington Area Chamber of Commerce. In 1940, Mrs. Lanier and her husband, Ardell, opened Lanier Hardware, which has been a fixture in uptown Lexington since the day it opened. Because Mr. and Mrs. Lanier were partners in everything they did, whether it was in business or in their everyday lives, she helped run the hardware store and would do all of the bookkeeping and accounting. They also started Standell Properties, a local real estate business."
Helping Angels Lead Our Startups Act April 27, 2016
Bill Huizenga, R-MI
"Mr. Speaker, as a small-business owner and coming from a family of very entrepreneurial people, I know the importance of fostering an environment that promotes economic opportunity and especially allows small businesses to grow and create jobs."
Maximizing Small Business Competition Act Of 2016 April 19, 2016
Steven Chabot, R-OH
"The committee learned that a few years ago, the SBA essentially gave contracting officers a get-out-of-jail-free card on bundling and consolidation when it issued new regulations governing which contracts it would review. The SBA said that it would not review multiple award contracts if a single seat on the contract was reserved for a small business—a single seat."
Small Agriculture Producer Size Standards Improvements Act Of 2015 April 19, 2016
Steven Chabot, R-OH
"These standards determine what is a small business for purposes of regulatory analyses, procurement programs, capital access, and technical entrepreneurial development assistance."
Forced Arbitration April 19, 2016
Donald Beyer, D-VA
"Quite simply, arbitration lacks many of the fundamental guarantees of fairness that a court provides. As a small business owner, I view binding arbitration as plainly unfair to the consumer and also unnecessary in the operation of a successful business practice. My business currently operates successfully without engaging in the same predatory practice for consumers."
