Leahy bill clears hurdle to support small businesses with National Guard and military reservists

first_imgVermont Business Magazine US Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) Thursday afternoon issued the following statements after their legislation to support small businesses with National Guard and military reservists unanimously passed the Senate Small Business Committee. The National Guard and Reserve Entrepreneurship Act will assist small businesses when essential employees, including small business owners, are called up as part of National Guard or Reservist duties by improving existing loan and deferral programs of the Small Business Administration (SBA) and making them more accessible.These programs include the Military Reservist Economic Injury Disaster Loan (MREIDL), a direct loan program that provides emergency working capital to small businesses to meet their obligations until operations return to normal after the essential employee is released from active duty military, and the Repayment Deferral for Active Duty Reservists (Repayment Deferral), which authorizes the SBA to work with private lenders to defer interest or loan repayment for small businesses facing similar situations.“The National Guard and our small businesses are foundational threads in the fabric of Vermont,” said Senator Leahy, the original sponsor of the legislation and Co-Chair of the Senate National Guard Caucus. “I’m pleased to support them with this legislation that makes it easier for veterans and service members to turn their ideas into reality.  Empowering the entrepreneurial spirit in this and other ways makes a real difference for Vermonters and for our communities.”“Citizen soldiers are a fundamental part of our nation’s military, and we need to do everything we can to support their service,” said Senator Shaheen. “This bill will do just that by improving access to support programs offered by the SBA to entrepreneurs and small businesses affected by deployments, and I am pleased to see it moving forward with broad bipartisan support.””On behalf of the more than 45,000 members of the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS), we greatly appreciate Senator Shaheen’s legislation to support small businesses owned by Guardsmen and Reservists,” said BG (Retired) J. Roy Robinson, NGAUS President. “This commonsense bill not only assists our citizen-soldiers who run small businesses, but also encourages future entrepreneurship by increasing the eligibility and utilization of the Military Reservists Economic Injury Disaster Loan program and the Repayment Deferral for Activity Duty Reservists.  We also thank the Senate Small Business Committee for their support and urge the Senate to adopt this vitally important bill.”Source: (THURSDAY, October 11, 2018) – US Senators Patrick Leahylast_img read more

The “Kansas” looks terrible, and the numbers look terrible. If there was one way to make a black jersey suck somethin’ awful…this is it.The old “warhawk” on the red helmet looks like it had a long night at the bar. The current logo is far better.

I do however like the direction of the light blue helmet. 0 Share this post 11,800 posts As with most things in sports this is another case of “good idea, poor execution”. Im ok with them having 5 helmets and 4 jerseys. But wheres the consistancy that ties them together? Theres so many misses on the details (2 number fonts WTF?) that its like different pieces from 10 diferent schools. Its so funny that schools want to copy Oregon and miss so often on what makes that work; a consistant, harmonious look in every combination UC! The phrase “heinous mishmash” comes to mind. And that flash-and-gone video loop is beyond annoying. Cujo 4,212 Link to post Mitch B Location:Ohio 61 Location:Denver, Colo.

This is terrible. What an identity crisis. Absolutely NO reason for the black uniform. Red helmet looks terrible — actually, they all do.And the random Houston Oilers throwbacks?? The ??It’s like Adidas just went to Goodwill and threw some together. Maybe they can be the first team to wear different uniforms on offense and defense.
