Finkenauer Expects First Bill to Pass This Week

Finkenauer

Dubuque’s representative in Congress may have only been in office for ten days, but she already expects her first bill to pass soon. Democrat Abby Finkenauer of Dubuque introduced what’s called the “Stimulating Innovation through Procurement Act of 2019” last week. The bill is a joint effort of Finkenauer and Republican Congressman John Curtis of Utah. Finkenauer says the bill will bring federal investment to small businesses in rural America. Specifically, it’ll help rural communities access the Small Business Technology Transfer Program. Finkenauer expects the bill to pass the House with bipartisan support sometime this week.
