Small Business, Jobs & the Economy

Small business power our economy in Burlington and Ocean Counties. The majority of our neighbors work at small businesses, and most New Jersey businesses qualify as a small business. When our small businesses succeed, our communities succeed, and that’s why I’m dedicated to being a voice for our entrepreneurs in Congress. In my first year, I created a Small Business Advisory Council to make sure we’re listening to small business owners across South Jersey. As a member of the House Small Business Committee, I’ve introduced legislation to cut bureaucratic red tape and give our small business owners the resources they need to grow.

Check out what I’m doing to empower our entrepreneurs in New Jersey:   

H.R.4805 — ABC Act of 2019
H.R.3661 — Patriotic Employer Protection Act of 2019
H.R.2673 — Small Business Regulatory Relief Act
Microloans

H.Res.730 — Expressing support for the recognition and celebration of the vital role of small businesses, along with the efforts of the Small Business Administration to help Americans start, build, and grow businesses.
