TMCnet: Kilroy’s Lending Bill Included in Major Job Creating Measure

Sep 29, 2010 (Congressional Documents and Publications/ContentWorks via COMTEX) — Washington, DC–U.S. Representative Mary Jo Kilroy’s Small Business Intermediary Lending Pilot Program Act, a bill that would create a three-year lending pilot program for small businesses, passed the House of Representatives today as part of the Small Business Jobs Act. The pilot program would give small businesses the capital to create jobs by providing them with low cost, long term loans through the Small Businesses Administration (SBA).

“Small businesses are the engines of job growth in our country and it is up to us to give them the fuel to succeed. My bill will break the barriers to credit that central Ohio businesses face so they can continue to stimulate the economy and put Ohioans back to work,” said Kilroy.

The Columbus Dispatch: Kilroy wants to extend tax cuts only for middle class

Count Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy among House Democrats who remain adamant about extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts for the middle class but allowing them to expire for households making $250,000 and up.

The Columbus Democrat said last week on a conference call with reporters and ProgressOhio that she stands with President Barack Obama on the issue and against talk of a compromise that would extend the tax cuts for wealthier Americans for at least a year or two.
