S. 2300 Update

As we move into 2008 please note the Senate will be considering S .2300, so be sure to reach to your representatives this week.

Our fight for the removal of large firms from federal small business contracting has reached a point where the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship has heard our plea and is introducing comprehensive legislation to remove large firms from federal small business contracting with S. 2300 the, “Small Business Contracting Revitalization Act of 2007.”

I wanted to let you know that the Senate Committee on Small business and Entrepreneurship voted on and passed S.2300 on November 7th. This bill will now move to the full Senate.

S. 2300 addresses:
- Contract bundling
- Annual re-certification via CCR (with out additional bureaucracy see Sec. 502)
- Subcontractor misrepresentation
- Expands opportunities for minority, women and service-disabled veteran owned small business.

Please email your elected officials today and ask them to support S. 2300.

Text: "Please support S. 2300 the Small Business Contracting Revitalization Act and annual re-certification via CCR which will help remove large firms from Federal Small Business Contracting."
