November 17, 2016

(Washington DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement on the announcement that she will continue to serve as Ranking Member on the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship in the 115th Congress, beginning January 3, 2017:

“I am grateful once again for the opportunity to lead my Democratic colleagues on the Small Business Committee. When I came to the Senate, I asked to join the Small Business Committee because small businesses are the backbone of New Hampshire’s economy. On the Committee, my top priority has been to help small businesses grow by passing legislation that provides access to credit, enhances their ability to reach new markets overseas, and increase their contracting opportunities with the federal government. We’ve accomplished a lot in the last Congress and I look forward to continue working with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle to advance more bipartisan legislation. As Ranking Member, I will always give a voice to the small business owners, main street storeowners, and budding entrepreneurs who invest in their local economies, support jobs and expand their businesses.”
