Udall, Tester, Cantwell Introduce Bill To Launch Businesses And Create Jobs In Indian Country
WASHINGTON, D.C. ― U.S. Senators Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) introduced legislation to help launch businesses and create more jobs in Indian Country.
Their bill, the Native American Business Incubators Program Act, will establish and fund business incubators in Indian Country to help start and cultivate Native American-owned small businesses.
"Small businesses create jobs and opportunity and empower people to shape their own future, and that's why I'm doing all I can to support New Mexico's entrepreneurs, especially in Indian Country,” Udall said. "This bill will help Native American business owners navigate obstacles, cut through red tape, and get access to start-up funding. These important tools will help promising entrepreneurs get off on the right foot so they can launch their businesses — and stay in business."
