Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Honoring Subway Founder Fred Deluca October 2, 2015
Rosa DeLauro, D-CT
"Fred was a reflection of what we all define as the American Dream. What began as a small business to pay his way through college became one of our nation’s most beloved fast food chains. Fred never forgot from where it was he started. Whether through scholarships to help young students realize their dreams, grants to local non-profit organizations, or sharing his experiences and inspiring a new generation of young entrepreneurs, Fred gave back to his community and fellow man in so many ways."
Federal Contractors September 17, 2015
Cresent Hardy, R-NV
"As a small business contractor for more than two decades, I understand the unique relationship between a contractor and a subcontractor. In the end, the joint employer decision will disrupt this relationship and potentially discourage future contract arrangements."
Recognizing Kathy Arts Of The Fourth Congressional District Of California July 22, 2015
Tom McClintock, R-CA
"Whether as a small-business owner for the past 28 years, a volunteer coordinator for local county fairs and community festivals or a charity fundraiser, Kathy is the paragon of a go-to person."
Fifth Anniversary Of Dodd-Frank Act July 22, 2015
Roger Williams, R-TX
"As a small-business owner, as I have said, of over 40 years, I can say firsthand that Dodd-Frank is driving Main Street job creators and community banks and credit unions out of business. Yesterday in our op-ed, Congressman Randy Neugebauer and I wrote that the American people were fooled into believing Dodd-Frank was necessary to ensure financial stability and prevent future market meltdowns. But instead of responsibly studying the root causes of the financial crisis, Democrats in Washington rushed to regulate."
Export-Import Bank July 15, 2015
Buddy Carter, R-GA
"As a small-business man, having owned three independent retail pharmacies for the last 27 years, I understand the value in business of cutting costs and increasing revenues. It is important. You have to both cut costs and increase revenues, and you have to grow your business."
