Entry Title Date
Recognizing Delta Fuel June 18, 2015
David Vitter, R-LA
"In rural east Louisiana, Clint Vegas, president of Delta Fuel, has led the company to exponential growth, earning the company numerous recognitions as one of the most successful Hispanic-owned businesses in the United States. Vegas’ business skills have led to crucial job creation for the region. Delta Fuel’s success can be attributed in part to their being located in a Historically Underutilized Business Zone, or HUBZone. The Small Business Administration’s HUBZone program was created to spur economic activity in economically disadvantaged areas—helping small businesses in urban and rural communities gain preferential access to government contracting opportunities. By using the resources at hand, including the HUBZone program, Delta Fuel has been able to expand, resulting in the addition of numerous jobs and service centers throughout the rural east Louisiana region."
National Defense Authorization Act June 4, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"This bill would also better tailor the HUBZone Program to meet the needs of communities affected by the closure of U.S. military installations through the previous BRAC process. The provisions included in the bill are drawn from the HUBZone Expansion Act that I authored with my colleague Senator King."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions May 11, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"Mr. President, I rise to introduce legislation to better tailor the HUBZone program to meet the needs of communities affected by the closure of U.S. military installations through the Base Closure and Realignment, or BRAC, process. I am pleased to be joined by my colleague from Maine, Senator King, in introducing this legislation, the HUBZone Expansion Act of 2015."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 14, 2014
Paul Gosar, R-AZ
"Specifically, the amendment reduces a $3.8 million increase, above the fiscal year 2014 level, that was slated to go towards administration and bureaucracy. Instead, the amendment prioritizes spending and redirects those funds to important programs that actually help small businesses, like the HUBZone program, Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, women’s business centers, the State and trade export promotion, Native American outreach, and veterans business outreach centers."
Legislative Session November 21, 2013
Susan Collins, R-ME
"Finally, Senator King and I will offer an amendment to allow businesses that are located on a closed military base to draw employees from the local community to meet the 35-percent requirement for the purposes of qualifying as a HUBZone."
