WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Scott Brown, a Massachusetts Republican, has been named to the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
“Small businesses are the engines that drive our economy, and I look forward to fighting for policies that will help them grow,” Brown said in a statement. “During these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we implement commonsense initiatives to give entrepreneurs the confidence to expand and hire more workers. I am excited to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to spur economic growth and put people back to work.”
The Small Business Committee reviews all proposed legislation and issues relating to the Small Business Administration, a federal agency charged with helping small companies.
Brown also serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
