Veterans who run small businesses could soon have a better chance to compete for government contracts. Congressman Jimmy Panetta was one of the sponsors of the Ensuring Veteran Enterprise Participation in Strategic Sourcing Act. “The bill would eliminate that barrier that limited our veterans and their business from contracting with the federal government. It is a bill that is fair to veteran entrepreneurs.” Panetta said on the House floor yesterday that the General Services Administration is not giving veteran-owned businesses the proper consideration for office or janitorial supply government contracts. He said this bill, which is awaiting Senate action, would take care of that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXBmiZkGYR0&feature=youtu.be
