According to the Small Business Administration, 97 percent of Iowa’s employers are small businesses.  These businesses are the backbone of our economy and are essential to growing our economy and creating jobs.

I’m back home in Iowa working every weekend and one of my favorite things to do is visit small businesses.  I am constantly impressed with the innovation and dedication of employers and employees alike.  You can see photos of some of the businesses I have visited here.

To honor small businesses this week, I joined a bipartisan group to introduce a Resolution supporting “National Small Business Week.”  This week is all about supporting local businesses and recognizing the contributions small businesses make to our communities and our economy.  I hope all Iowans will join me in making this week a celebration of Iowa’s small businesses.

As a founding member of the bipartisan Small Business Caucus, I have made championing small businesses a top priority.  This includes supporting numerous initiatives to help small businesses including joining the other side of the aisle in supporting a 20 percent small business tax cut and increased tax deductions for capital expenses.  It is critical that small business in Iowa continue to grow and prosper and I will continue to fight to ensure they have the tools they need to succeed.
