To mark National Small Business Week, U.S. Chris Collins is asking small business owners in his district to complete an online survey about the economy and other issues impacting the small-business sector.

Starting today, Collins will be email the survey to small business owners across the eight counties of New York's 27th Congressional District. Small business owners not a part of the the email list are encouraged to complete the survey on Collins' website.

The survey asks local small business owners to weigh in on such topics as federal regulations, taxes, and the new employer mandate which is part of the President's healthcare law. Collins is also asking small business owners to report on recent hiring activity, reasons why owners are or are not hiring, and what programs they would like to see the federal government pursue to spur small business growth and development.

"As a small business owner myself, I understand firsthand the challenges and hurdles business owners face on a day-to-day basis," Collins said. "As a member of Congress, one of my top goals is to continue to push hard for common-sense polices that create the right kind of economic environment for small business entrepreneurs to expand their company or start a new business, and hire more people."

Collins is a member of the House Small Business Committee and Chairman of its Subcommittee on Health and Technology.

National Small Business Week began June 17 and continues through Friday. On Friday, Collins will host a roundtable meeting, talking with small business owners directly about the issues addressed in the survey.

The survey can be found online at chriscollins.house.gov.
