LET WISDOM, HARD WORK AND EXPERIENCE REPLACE POLITICS for your support On November 2, 2010 PAID BY CANDIDATE New law will spur job growth, help get Americans back to work Information courtesy SEN. TOM UDALL'S OFFICEIWashington, DC U.S. Senator Tom Udall this week released the following state- ment after President Obama signed into law the Small Business Jobs Act, which will help small busi- nesses create 500,000 new jobs nationwide through $12 billion in new tax cuts, increased small business lending and expanded access to private capital. The Sen- ate approved the legislation by a 61-38 vote earlier this month. "While the economy is con- tinuing to recover from the worst recession since the Great Depres- sion, it's not improving fast enough - not for the thousands of out-of-work New Mexicans or for anyone who has struggled to pay the bills over the last few years. What this new law does is help establish the right kind of eco- nomic conditions for small busi- nesses - which have created two- thirds of all new jobs in American over the last 15 years - to expand, hire more workers and lead our economy to full recovery. When small businesses succeed, Ameri- cans succeed.
