FROM THE DESK OF THE 8-PAC EDITOR: We here at the 8-PAC subscribe the adage, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it“; this includes the congressional committees who proclaim to support the interests of the small business community of the US. Therefore, in the spirit of accountability; please find below for your download the “OVERSIGHT PLAN OF THE COMMITTEE ON SMALL BUSINESS FOR THE ONE HUNDRED ELEVENTH CONGRESS”.
As summarized in the document: “Clause 2(d)(1) of rule X of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the 111th Congress requires each standing committee, not later than February 15th of the first session to adopt an oversight plan for the 111th Congress. The oversight plan must be submitted simultaneously to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and the Committee on House Administration.”
We will track the progress of this plan over the 2009 annum; and grade the areas in which the Committee and its subcommittees conduct oversight during this Congress.
