Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley wants to reduce the wait times for small businesses to benefit from a federal program. Merkley introduced legislation this week that would accelerate the time after a census, that metro areas can be designated "Hub Zones," so they can compete for federal contracts. The current wait time is two years. Merkley is trying to cut down on bureaucracy and expedite Hub Zone designations, to get critical assistance to small businesses in hard hit areas.
