Testimony to the Senate Committee on Appropriations Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee
Chairman Udall, Ranking Member Johanns, and distinguished members of this Subcommittee, thank you for this opportunity to testify today.
We appreciate your ongoing support for SBA as we work to assist the entrepreneurs who are so critical to economic growth and local job creation.
I’ve been on the job for six weeks now. I’ve traveled across the country to meet with our core constituencies: small business owners, veteran entrepreneurs, SBA lenders, CDCs, procurement officials, exporters, and victims of the devastating mudslide in Washington state.

Seattle Field Hearing: Small Business Innovation Research Program
Thank you, Chairwoman Cantwell, for convening this hearing and for your outstanding leadership in the Senate to support America's innovators and entrepreneurs. Washington State has been a laboratory for how to create the hi-tech, high-paying jobs of the future. From software to aviation to manufacturing, the Evergreen State is showing the world what 21st century economic leadership looks like. At the SBA, we want to help create more success stories like Seattle.
