Roybal-Allard Speaks to Business Owners

DOWNEY -- Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-34) joined small business leaders who are members of five area chambers to update them on what Congress is doing to help small businesses and bolster the local economy. Roybal-Allard explained that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which she supported, contains a package of loan fee reductions, higher guarantees, new Small Business Administration (SBA) programs, secondary market incentives, and enhancements to current SBA programs that will help unlock credit markets and begin economic recovery for the nation's small business sector.********** Published: March 20, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 48
