Ad sponsored by WNM Communications ......... t Udall proposal would help NM small businesses diversify, expand and create new jobs Submitted by SEN. TOM UDALL'S OFFiCEWashington, DC U.S. Senator Tom Udall last week introduced a bill to help small business federal govern- ment contractors in New Mexico and across the country access the tools, training and hands-on help necessary to diversify their busi- nesses and create jobs. The American Diversifica- tion and Progress in Trade (ADAPT) Act of 2014 creates a pilot program at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) that will help small business con- tractors find new customers and grow into new markets. By im- proving small businesses' access to tools, strategies and hands-on help about diversification, and removing barriers that make it harder to break into large com- pany supply chains, the program will empower small businesses to better compete for private sector dollars. "Small businesses are the foundation of New Mexico's economy and make up 96 percent of our employers, and I'm com- mitted to helping reduce unnec- essary barriers so entrepreneurs can thrive. My ADAPT Act offers small businesses another set of tools to find new customers, ex- pand their business and create good-paying jobs for Discover Hidalgo Iookingfor hardworking New Mexicans," Udall said. Small businesses are a driv- ing force behind economic growth and job creation in New Mexico and across the nation. More than half of all working Americans own or work for a small business, and small bUsi- nesses are responsible for over two thirds of the net new private sector jobs created over the past decade. As part of its core mis- sion, the SBA works to generate small business growth and create jobs, in part by promoting fed- eral contracts to small businesses. Udall's ADAPT Act would help create jobs and new opportuni- ties for New Mexicans by ensur- ing that businesses that rely upon federal dollars have the tools to move forward and continue to expand into developing markets. Specifically, the bill would: - Create a toolkit that in- cludes best practices, strategies and other information on expand- ing and diversifying the customer base of small business contrac- tors; - Allow small businesses across the country to benefit from American Supplier Initiative, which removes barriers that small businesses face in trying to break into large company supply chains; - Develop a website for busi- nesses that contract with the fed- eral government to help them eas- ily access information on expand- ing and diversifying their cus- tomer base. The ADAPT Act has garnered endorsements from major busi- ness groups in New Mexico, in- cluding the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and the Los Alamos National Laboratory Major Subcontractor Consor- tium. "Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and major contributors to job growth in New Mexico," said Terri.Cole, president and CEO of the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Com- merce. "Senator Udall's American Diversification and Progress in Trade Act will help ensure that small businesses in New Mexico that rely on federal contracts have the resources and information they need to succeed and grow." "The LANL Major Subcontractor's Consortium strongly supports the proposed ADAPT Act,". said Liddie Martinez, president of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Major Subcontractor Consortium (LANL MSC). "Senator Udall's consistent advocacy of small business is greatly appreciated. Too many small businesses, es- pecially in rural areas such as Northern New Mexico, are ex- tremely dependent on a few gov- ernment contracts and are fre- quently hurt when government spending dramatically changes or stops. It is critical that these businesses diversify and become les dependent on sales to the government and the measures proposed in this bill will assist in the diversification goal."
