WASHINGTON - House Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) made the following statement after the U.S. Senate confirmed Wilbur Ross as the 39th Secretary of Commerce.

“I congratulate Mr. Ross on his confirmation as Commerce Secretary and look forward to working with him to craft pro-growth policies that will open new doors for America’s entrepreneurs,” said Chairman Chabot. “From infrastructure to innovation, the Commerce Department has wide-ranging jurisdiction over a number of issues that are important to small businesses. I’m confident that Secretary Ross’s vast experience in finance will make him a strong ally as Congress works on creating American jobs for American workers in the face of unfair global competition.”
