WASHINGTON (September 24, 2020) —  This week President Trump issued a proclamation for National Small Business Week (NSBW), celebrating American businesses, entrepreneurs and workers. As the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) celebrates its 50-year anniversary of Progress for a Stronger Future, it also salutes the contributions of small businesses to communities across the country. Since 1970, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people, and small businesses remain an integral part of the agency’s efforts to protect human health and the environment.

“In this time of unprecedented disruption for our nation’s small businesses, it is more important than ever to recognize our outstanding small business support,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “I am proud of our effective staff efforts that will ensure our partnership with small businesses remains strong and vibrant.”

It’s been 47 days since the closure of the Payment Protection Program, preventing small businesses for applying for CARES Act funding. House Small Business Committee Ranking Member Steve Chabot has a piece of legislation that would re-open the PPP to start funneling that money to businesses in desperate need during the pandemic. 

“Real people’s jobs continue to be in jeopardy through no fault of their own,” Chabot said on the House floor on Wednesday. “This is just unacceptable…This is unacceptable because small businesses play an outsized role in our economy.”

Nearly one out of every two people in this country are employed by small businesses, he explained. And small businesses create two out of every three new jobs. 

“We have an option before us today – this very day – if we defeat today’s previous question we can move directly to my legislation to re-open the Paycheck Protection Program,” the
