SBIR Temporarily Extended
Jonathan Ortmans, President, Public Forum Institute
On Friday, July 31, President Obama signed into law “The Small Business Act and the Small Business Investment Act Temporary Extension” (S. 1513), which temporarily reauthorizes the Small Business Innovation (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs until September 30, 2009.
This new two month extension will allow Congress to reach a compromise on the reauthorization language. For more background information, see our previous posts on this subject.
