Raleigh – Rep. Jim Crawford has been appointed to the House Select Committee on Small Business.

The House Select Committee on Small Business is responsible for studying issues related to small business including: access to credit; technical assistance and support needs of small businesses; the impact of existing economic development efforts on small business development; and tax credits to small businesses to spur job creation.

“I am delighted that the Democrats are paying special attention to small businesses, and I look forward to working with the committee to come up with some ideas to preserve and promote small business interests in the state of North Carolina,” said Rep. Crawford.

Rep. Crawford is a small business owner currently serving his 13th term in the House of Representatives. He is chair of the House Committee on Appropriations and vice chair of House Transportation. Several sessions earlier, Rep. Crawford organized the House Small Business Caucus to monitor relevant legislation and continues to chair that caucus.
