WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, today met with President-elect Trump's Small Business Administration nominee, Linda McMahon.

Following the meeting, Senator Ernst issued the following statement:

“Ms. McMahon and I had a productive meeting discussing the challenges America’s small businesses are facing, and sharing our visions for a path forward.  Small businesses make up 97 percent of all employers in Iowa, and I enjoyed hearing how Ms. McMahon will go to the mat for our small businesses and work to create an environment where job creators and our entrepreneurs can thrive again.”

“We also discussed my legislation, the Prove It Act, which gives small businesses a stronger voice in the regulatory process. The Prove It Act is one step we can take to provide regulatory relief for some of America’s most dedicated and hard-working entrepreneurs. 

“As a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, I look forward to continuing the vetting process for Ms. McMahon and ensuring that small businesses have a strong voice in the new administration."
