Kerry says Gulf Coast small businesses need help

"The Gulf Coast can't recover and rebuild if Washington ignores the urgency of the challenge. Hurricane Katrina hit two months ago, but small businesses are still clamoring for assistance. The SBA is moving at a snail's pace. The lumbering bureaucracy has approved less than 3 percent of the loan applications they've received. It's painfully obvious that more needs to be done to help the small businesses in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and the thousands of people they employ," said Kerry, top Democrat on the Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
