Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
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."
Raising Consolidated Assets Threshold Under Small Bank Holding Company Policy Statement April 14, 2016
Mia Love, R-UT
"Mr. Speaker, to sum this up, this bill is not about supporting banks. It is about supporting families, communities, and small businesses. It is about making sure that a small-business owner, like my constituent Jennifer Jones, has access to the credit she needs to expand her early childhood academy, where she teaches children to read before they reach kindergarten. It is about families who are sitting around their kitchen tables and are imagining the possibilities of renovating or of improving their homes. It is about that entrepreneur who is starting a restaurant and being her own boss. It is about the thousands of new jobs that will be created in those communities as a result."
