Washington D.C.: Congressman Steve Chabot of Ohio's first Congressional District and Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Small Business was the featured speaker at an event hosted in Reston, VA. Participants included prominent business entrepreneurs doing business with the Federal Government, and members of USINPAC.
Thanking the attendees that had gathered to share their ideas to bring efficiency to Federal Government operations, Chairman Chabot said that America is strong when small businesses are strong. This is why the mission of the Small Business Committee is to facilitate the growth of small businesses and their ability to do business with the Federal government.
Participants expressed concerns, and offered solutions, about delays and cancellations of project proposals by Federal agencies. Congressman Chabot said that his staff would follow up and that he would arrange a hearing to draw more attention to the issues raised by the small business community.
“Congressman Chabot has shown a great willingness to work with us to address the issues of small companies that are now finding themselves competing with large companies who are consolidating or partnering to make it harder for small businesses to win their share of Federal Government contracts," Sanjay Puri said, “and we thank him for his support.”
Congressman Chabot has served as Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East, and the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, which have broad jurisdiction for US policy affecting India. Sanjay Puri serves as President of USINPAC.
