Small Scale Disaster Small Business Assistance Act of 2006 - Amends the Small Business Act to authorize the Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA) to make disaster loans to a small business that: (1) has suffered or is likely to suffer over $50,000 in damage or lost revenue as the result of a small-scale disaster; and (2) is not otherwise receiving federal or state assistance by reason of the disaster.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.

No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
