This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: Access to Capital Programs in SBA

Since taking over the House Committee on Small Business, Congressman Steve Chabot has pressed the Small Business Administration to evaluate its programs to support entrepreneurs – and to increase access to capital.  On Wednesday, the Committee on Small Business will hold a markup on legislation to improve access to capital programs within the SBA, including: 

• H.R. 2499: Veterans Entrepreneurship Act of 2015
• H.R. 208: Superstorm Sandy Relief Act
• H.R. 1023: The Small Business Investment Company Capital Act of 2015
• H.R. 2670: Microloan Modernization Act of  2015

Other topics covered by hearings and meetings in the week ahead include:  regulatory reform, minimum wage, oversight of FCC field offices, Export-Import Bank and more.
