WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement on the Small Business Lending Fund Act, which was passed by the House Financial Services Committee today:
“The Small Business Lending Fund Act passed by the Financial Services Committee today is another part of Democrats’ continuing effort to keep creating jobs.  We know that small businesses are the engine of economic growth, and the bill passed today is crucial to help restore the flow of credit they need to grow and be successful.  I’m disappointed that Republicans, to a person, once again voted against legislation that will help Americans on Main Street.  I hope they reconsider and join with us to pass this legislation when we bring it to the House Floor for a vote soon.”
