WASHINGTON – Recently, the President signed into law the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2019, which included several small business provisions.

“Our nation demands a vital small business industrial base: it is fundamental to the health of our nation as a whole.  I am grateful to the House Armed Services Committee for working with the Small Business Committee and I look forward to continuing that relationship to ensure that small businesses provide the Department of Defense and the federal government with competitive solutions to support critical programs,” said House Committee on Small Business Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH).

Versions of the following bills were included in FY19 NDAA:

  • H.R. 2056, the Microloan Modernization Act
