Washington, D.C. – As news reports circulate that President Obama will recommend the Small Business Administration (SBA) be elevated to Cabinet-level status, Kristie L. Arslan, President and CEO of the NASE, reacted by supporting the effort saying “it signals the importance of the small business community to our national economy.” 

“Millions of small businesses across the country will be well-served by President Obama’s effort to elevate the Small Business Administration to Cabinet-level status. It will provide a signal to millions of small business owners – including the self-employed and micro-businesses – that they are an important part of the national economy.”
