U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) in honor of small business week, today announced a new resource available on his Congressional website, the Small Business Resource Center.
"I want to thank our small businesses for the role they play in our local communities," said Rep. Kind. "Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They are generating 65 percent of jobs, serve as important anchors in our towns and villages, and are vital to our economic recovery. I hope our small businesses in western Wisconsin find this resource informative and helpful."
The Small Business Resource Center provides information and links to resources about current legislation affecting small businesses, new tax benefits, the impacts of the new health care reform bill, and financial information as well as other tools. The online portal is meant to provide small business owners and employees useful information and resources for continued growth and stability.
"I will continue working to provide our small businesses every possible resource to weather this economic climate and drive dollars back into our local economies. I am committed to working on behalf of small businesses not only in western Wisconsin but across the country."
