As the Ranking Member of the Contracting and Workforce Subcommittee, I am California's leading advocate for small businesses in Washington. With small businesses making up more than 99 percent of all American companies, but receiving fewer than one-quarter of federal contracts, my focus is to ensure small businesses receive the economic benefits of federal contacts and create jobs in communities across the nation. For each one percent increase in the share of contracts going to small businesses, 100,000 new jobs are created. With unemployment above 9 percent, it is my number one priority to bring more entrepreneurs into the federal procurement marketplace.
