Udall Talks Up S 509 at GAC: Onsite Coverage
WASHINGTON — Efforts to raise the business lending cap have been the only part of the jobs act that would actually create jobs, Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) told GAC general session attendees Tuesday morning.
The primary author of S 509, Udall repeated earlier reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) promised a vote on the bill. Udall also said Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.), a long-time ally to credit unions, has influenced 60 Republicans to support H.R. 1418, the House version of his bill.
