[...] I commend the SBA's [Small Business Administration] staff who have worked diligently around the clock, often 7 days a week for over a year now. Their dedication and work, while not perfect, have made a difference in the lives of millions of small business owners and workers. Now is the time to continue this Committee's work to take a hard look at this effort and learn lessons for the future. I hope to examine the problems uncovered by our nation's watchdogs and hear about SBA's efforts to address them."
