Excerpt from Nomination of Ginger Ehn Lew to Be Deputy Administrator of the United States Small Business Administration and the United States Small Business Administration's Fiscal Year 1997 Budget: Hearing Before the Committee on Small Business, United States Senate, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session, May 1, 1996 The Committee met, pursuant to notice, at 9:42 a.m., in room SR-428A, Russell Senate Office Building, the Honorable Christopher S. Bond (Chairman of the Committee) presiding. Present: Senators Bond, Kempthorne, Bennett, Snowe, Bumpers, and Wellstone. Chairman Bond. Good morning and welcome to this hearing of the Small Business Committee. Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in starting. I was doing an extensive interview on Small Business Week, and I figure that is at least a plausible argument for being late. I have talked with our ranking member. Senator Bumpers, who has, I think, two markups scheduled this morning. Normally, I do not like to go ahead without him because he is a very faithful attendee, but with his heavy workload today I thought that we would go ahead. Before making my opening comments about the nomination of Ginger Lew to be deputy administrator of the Small Business Administration, I note that Congresswoman Pelosi is with us and I know that your schedule is busy. You may have some comments that you would wish to offer us before we get into the business of the hearing. Statement Of The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, A Representative In Congress From California Ms. Pelosi. Thank you very much, Senator. I appreciate the opportunity to be here this morning. It is really a personal pleasure, but also a professional one, to be able to introduce to the Committee Ginger Lew. Ginger Lew, as you know, is being considered for the position of deputy administrator for the Small Business Administration.
