Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Veterans Small Business Week
Tuesday, November 5, 2019
Veterans have a big impact on the American economy.  
There are 2.5 million veteran-owned business in the United States that account for more than $1.1 trillion in revenue. 
In Iowa, there are 26,119 veteran owned businesses that employ 51,801 people and bring in $10.9 million. 
Iowa is working hard to attract veterans and help them start and expand their businesses. 
I honor these hard working entrepreneurs who have served our country by joining my colleagues in recognizing the week of November 4 as ‘‘National Veterans Small Business Week.”
