Bill Introduced To Transfer SDVOSB Verification To SBA

Today, Congressman Mike Coffman introduced the Improving Opportunities for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses Act of 2013.

The bill would standardize the requirements for SDVOSB eligibility, eliminating the current differences between the SBA’s and VA’s regulations.  In addition, the bill would transfer responsibility for verifying SDVOSB status to the SBA (the VA would retain authority for determining whether an individual is a service-disabled veteran).

Hardy Stone’s website, VetLikeMe, has a more detailed summary of the bill.  I will be closely tracking this legislation and will post updates if and when it moves forward.
