House Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves appeared on Fox News’ "Your World with Neil Cavuto" today to discuss the President’s proposed Executive Order that would force companies to disclose political donations before being allowed to apply for federal contracts.

Other quotes from the interview:

“If {they say} it’s not going to be used to make a determination in the award, if it’s not going to discriminate against companies that have given to causes or candidates that they don’t like, then why do they need the {political information}?”

“What worries me is that this Administration wants to know this {political information} before they award the contract. This distrubs me a great deal.”
