Washington, DC – Congressman John Curtis (R-UT) released the following statement after his bill, H.R. 246, Stimulating Innovation through Procurement Act of 2019, passed the House of Representatives. The bipartisan legislation would bring federal investment to small businesses in rural America by helping more small businesses access federal programs such as SBIR and STTR.
“I am proud that my home state of Utah has fostered a thriving tech hub and innovation marketplace, where the tech industry grew faster last year than any other state in the nation,” said Curtis.
“But there is still more work to be done there and across the country. This bill reinforces my commitment to small business success by stimulating technological innovation through the Small Business Innovation Research, or SBIR program. I was pleased to work with Rep. Abby Finkenauer to create this legislation that will ensure these small businesses have a voice in the procurement process and can compete on a level playing field to have a chance at success.”
