"I am a former small business owner, and my experience taught me firsthand about the challenges of starting and running a business. It is my goal to make opening up a business in our communities as easy as possible and to give business owners the tools to succeed. At a time when our country continues to feel the impact of the economic downturn, we should do all we can to encourage small business growth and expansion. I am also committed to ensuring that consumer products are safe for American families. I hope that the resources here will provide practical information on how to grow businesses and protect consumers." - Congressman Jerry McNerney
