"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."

Remembering Henry T. “Hank” Wilfong, Jr. June 10, 2013
Mary Landrieu, D-LA
"Mr. President, as chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, I join the small business community throughout our country in mourning the death of Mr. Henry T. “Hank” Wilfong, Jr., president of the National Association of Small Disadvantaged Businesses, NASDB. Mr. Wilfong was a valued partner in promoting, improving, and increasing opportunities for firms owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. He not only was a CPA, with an MBA from UCLA, he also served in a number of capacities for Presidents, Governors, and local municipalities. Most notably, Mr. Wilfong was the first Black Pasadena City Councilman. He was also a three-time Presidential appointee, which included the Small Business Administration’s Associate Administrator of the 8(a) Program. Later, he founded NASDB, a trade organization representing over 300 minority, women-owned, service-disabled, veteran-owned, and HUBZone small businesses."

Tom Udall, D-NM
"Mr. President, I have reintroduced the Assuring Contracting Equity, or ACE Act, with a correction to a drafting error in order to ensure increases in contracting goals for service-disabled veteran owned small businesses and qualified HUBZone small businesses. I look forward to working with my colleagues to address the issues facing entrepreneurs who do business with the Federal Government and hope that we can ensure that more Federal dollars are getting out to main street."
