Small businesses are the backbone of American’s economy. Our nation’s 29 million small businesses create six out of every ten new jobs, make up the vast majority of exporters and employ about half of all private-sector employees.
Throughout my time in Congress, I have served on the House Committee on Small Business, where I have had the privilege to champion America’s entrepreneurs. Currently, I serve as the Chairman of the Committee. To find out more about the numerous efforts I am leading to strengthen the small business community and the American economy, please visit the Committee’s website.
