Senate Temporarily Extends SBA Programs through April 2010

The United States Senate passed legislation to temporarily extend Small Business Administration (SBA) programs through April 30, 2010.
As stated by  Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., Chair of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, “a six-month extension of the SBA and its programs – including the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs – ensures that the agency has the stability it needs to provide our innovators and job creators the assistance they need to remain successful.
“While we continue to make progress on all of our reauthorization measures – SBIR/STTR, SBA’s loans and venture capital programs, contracting assistance, and management counseling – this temporary reauthorization will help keep America’s 29m small businesses running through the holiday season”.
