USWCC Commends House Small Business Committee Challenging Wasteful Spending in SBA Budget

Last week the House Small Business Committee held a hearing on the U.S. Small Business Administration’s spending policies.  The Committee identified numerous areas that will continue to cost taxpayers including duplicate and non-mandated programs and initiatives at the expense of those directed by Congress to be implemented. Full Committee comments can be viewed here.

In response, the U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce submitted testimony commending the House Small Business Committee on their efforts to reign in SBA spending. Additionally we asked that the new WOSB/EDWOSB legislation be implemented expeditiously to ensure only eligible WOSBs are awarded contracts. Read Submitted Testimony Here.
