SBA Administrator’s Statement on Senate’s Passage of S.2155

WASHINGTON – The following statement was made by U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Linda McMahon: 

“The SBA works very closely with community banks, and so many of them have told me that relaxing Dodd-Frank’s regulations would mean they could more easily lend to local small businesses. I am pleased to see the Senate’s passage of S.2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act. Efforts like this are crucial to creating a more positive environment for America’s entrepreneurs. When community banks are able to lend, it means greater access to capital for the 30 million small businesses that are truly the engines of our economy.”
