Federal Investment And Innovation Legislation

California district 48 congressman Harley Rouda's legislation stimulating small business investment passed unanimously last month.

Commenting on the event, he said "I know from experience how difficult it can be for small businesses to reach potential investors. That’s why it’s a tremendous point of pride that my legislation stimulating small business investment passed unanimously last month!

3/ Promoting diversity by encouraging participants to use funding for outreach to women- and minority-owned firms." Read more
