Congresswomen Carolyn Maloney and Marsha Blackburn Introduce Resolution Honoring the National Association of Women Business Owners

Congressional Resolution Congratulates Organization on its 40th Anniversary

 

(Washington, DC) — U.S. Congresswomen Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) have introduced a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives to commend the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) for “its tireless efforts and decades of support of women entrepreneurs and business owners.” H.Res.276 also congratulates NAWBO on the 40th anniversary.

“We are so grateful to Representatives Maloney and Blackburn for sponsoring this resolution in Congress. Their leadership is truly appreciated. Since our founding 40 years ago, NAWBO has advocated for the elimination of state laws requiring women entrepreneurs to have a male co-signatory for business loans, the creation of the National Women’s Business Council, and ensuring women entrepreneurs and the contributions they make to our economy are understood and being counted,” asserted Darla Beggs, NAWBO National Board Chair. “Today, we are proud to serve as the only voice of all women entrepreneurs regardless of sector, size or stage in development. We will continue our work to expand opportunities for women entrepreneurs and look forward to working with Congresswomen Maloney and Blackburn who have distinguished themselves by standing up for women business owners.”
