Sens. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., introduced a measure to help female-owned businesses gain better access to federal contracts. The legislation would change sole-source rules and remove ceiling amounts on contracts that would qualify. Snowe met with NAWBO representatives before introducing the bill. "We appreciate Sen. Snowe's quick response to our concerns, and look forward to working with her to move this bill forward," said Kelly Scanlon, NAWBO national chairwoman-elect.
