Media Advisory: Senator Ben Cardin Joins Small Business Majority to Share Insights on Forthcoming Legislation Impacting Small Business

For Immediate Release: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

What: On November 18, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship, Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), will join Small Business Majority for an in depth virtual discussion on forthcoming key legislation spearheaded by the Committee, as well as key provisions in the "Build Back Better" plan that can benefit entrepreneurs. This virtual event is free and open to the press. 

Why: Small businesses have faced a challenging year on their road to recovery from the pandemic. Many of the emergency federal relief programs that were established at the height of the pandemic have run out of funds or are coming to an end. Meanwhile, supply chain disruptions and the introduction of the Delta variant left many small businesses concerned about the stability of their business operations. The recently passed bipartisan infrastructure plan will be important for bolstering recovery for small businesses, but many are still in need of robust investments and bold policies that will secure a stable long-term plan towards recovery. America’s entrepreneurs are looking for insight on what policies and programs are on the horizon that will help their business grow and thrive in 2022. 


  • U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D- MD), Chairman, Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship
  • Awesta Sarkash, Director of Government Affairs, Small Business Majority

When: Thursday, November 18, 2021, 3:00 pm ET - 3:30 pm ET
