U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (SBC), today issued the following statement regarding the Partnership for Public Service’s newly released annual survey, which ranked the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as one of the worst federal agencies to work for.

“Frankly, it’s alarming that the SBA – which plays an incredibly important role in assisting over 99% of all employers in the United States – is ranked as one of the worst federal agencies to work for,” said Vitter. “The SBA is in dire need of improved leadership and more engaged, mission-focused employees, and as Chairman of the Senate Small Business Committee, I will continue working with my Republican and Democrat colleagues to push the SBA to implement increased transparency and accountability measures to make sure the Agency is capable of efficiently serving our small businesses and entrepreneurs.”

The Senate Small Business Committee has jurisdiction over matters relating to the Small Business Administration and America’s small businesses, including government oversight, federal contracting, and regulatory impacts.
