Last Thursday, April 2, the House Small Business Committee Subcommittee on Rural Development, Entrepreneurship and Trade held a hearing entitled, “Legislative Initiatives to Modernize SBA’s Entrepreneurial Development Programs”. The hearing examined seven different bills which fall under the SBA Entrepreneurial Development programs.  To see the witness list and the bills discussed click here.

One of the witnesses, Dr. Barbara Rackley, coordinator of the Women’s Business Center (WBC) of Rural Enterprises of Oklahoma (REI), addressed the importance of the WBC program but did not comment on H.R. 1838, the Small Business Administration Women’s Business Programs Act of 2009, sponsored by Congresswoman Fallin.

H.R. 1838 also reauthorizes funding for the National Women's Business Council (NWBC) at $1 million for FY10 and FY11.
