WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) was unanimously elected by House Republicans to serve as the Ranking Member of the House Small Business Committee.

As the Ranking Member of the Small Business Committee my top priority is to ensure the government responsibly assists the recovery through PPP and other lending programs without the weight of needless bureaucracy and harmful mandates. I am honored by my colleagues’ confidence in my ability to lead this committee and look forward to getting to work for small businesses in Missouri and across America.”
