Committee on Small Business

The House Select Committee on Small Business is a permanent standing committee of the United States House of Representatives since January 5, 1975.

The committee was first created by the U.S. House of Representatives to respond to a growing number of small business activists and organizations advocating for more protections and better government policies for the country's small businesses. After being made a permanent standing committee, it was granted certain areas of legislative jurisdiction and oversight functions, increasing its scope and influence.
