WASHINGTON - Today, Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) of the House Small Business Committee released the following statement on the Hurricane Harvey Emergency Funding legislation to designate $450 million to the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Disaster Loan Program.

"As Chairman of the House Small Business Committee, I applaud House Leadership, Chairman Frelinghuysen, and the House Appropriations Committee on their swift action to craft a bill to provide disaster relief aid to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The people of Texas and Louisiana are strong, but their small businesses will need our help to rebuild.”

“I trust that the SBA and Administrator McMahon will be good stewards of the funds and ensure small businesses and homeowners get back on their feet as quickly as possible.”
