THE SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
TUESDAY, MARCH 26, 1957
SUBCOMMITTEE No. 2,
Washington, D. C. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 10:10 a. m., in the committee room, George Washington Inn, Washington, D. C., Hon. Abraham J. Multer (chairman of the subcommittee) presiding.
Present: Representatives Multer, Evins, Riehlman, Seely-Brown, and Hill.
Also present: Irving Maness, subcommittee counsel, Victor P. Dalmas, adviser to the minority, and Katherine C. Blackburn, research analyst. Mr. MULTER. Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
I am sure that most of you know that we are attended here this morning by my colleagues on the committee, starting on the farthest left: Congressman Hill, of Colorado, who is the ranking minority member of the full committee. Then we have Mr. Seely-Brown, of Connecticut; Mr. Riehlman, of New York.
On the right side, Mr. Evins, of Tennessee.
Then we have Mr. Dalmas, minority adviser, and on my right, Mr. Maness, counsel to the subcommittee, and Miss Blackburn of the staff.
With your permission I will make a very brief opening statement.
The Small Business Act of 1953, as amended, will expire on July 30, 1957. We have, therefore, scheduled these hearings for the purpose of conducting a complete and comprehensive study of the Small Business Administration and all its operations.
The purpose of the House Select Committee on Small Business is to study the problems and I use "study” rather than “investigate” because that is the history of the committee--we attempt to study the problems of small business and try to come up with a solution to them.
I think if any committee of the Congress has established a record of, not bipartisanship, but nonpartisanship, the House Select Committee on Small Business has done just that, and we intend to continue to operate that way.
In order to do the job that should be done to help small business solve its problems, we need, and invite, the aid of all interested agencies of Government, associations of small-business men, as well as small-business men themelves.
In 1953, the Small Business Administration was created to aid and assist and protect insofar as possible the interests of small business concerns in order to preserve free competitive enterprise.
