H.R. 4773 (101st): White House Conference on Small Business Authorization Act


To authorize the President to call and conduct a National White House Conference on Small Business.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.
