Mills, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), with comments for a proposed rule entitled “Small Business Size and Status Integrity”. The rule proposed regulations for the manner in which the SBA will address business size and status misrepresentations as instructed by the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010.
