WASHINGTON - Last week, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a 134-page report detailing new concerns about leadership and management at the Small Business Administration (SBA). Upon reviewing the report, Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) said the following:

“The members of the Small Business Committee take our oversight responsibilities seriously because this government is supposed to serve the people—never the other way around. The findings of this most recent GAO report on the SBA are incredibly concerning to us. For the sake of small businesses across the country who view the SBA as a resource and for the taxpayers who keep the SBA’s doors open, we’ll be taking a closer look at the issues and recommendations offered by the GAO and what the SBA can do to improve.”
