SBIR Continuing Resolution (S.990) approved by Senate, goes to House vote May 23rd

The Senate has passed the 12th Continuing Resolution (S.990) on the SBIR/STTR/CPP programs, to keep them “as-is” for one more year, extending them until May 31, 2012.

The CR now goes to the House for a vote on Tuesday, May 24th, 2011. We believe that there may be some resistance to passing this CR in the House Small Business Committee. There are rumblings that some in the House want to pass a one-month extension, in order to realize a full SBIR Re-Authorization to be voted on. However, considering there are major differences between the House & Senate on the proposed bills, it’s likely a decision cannot be reached in one month.

This CR is critical in giving the SBIR program the time it needs to be fully agreed upon by all involved.

We are urging all of our clients and contacts who are involved with the SBIR program, to contact their Representative in Capitol Hill, and urge them to vote for the Continuing Resolution of S.990!

You can find your representative through the SBTC Congressional Directory


Call the Capitol Hill Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for you representative’s office. If you do not know who your Representative is when you call, they can tell you at the switchboard by giving your Zip Code.
