SBA Chief Mills to Hold Online Q&A at White House

Small business issues will take the national stage next week when Karen Mills, head of U.S. Small Business Administration, answers business owners’ questions live during the White House’s “Open for Questions” online series.

On Sept. 29, Mills will discuss topics weighing heavily on owners’ minds: health care reform, recent legislation and the tax cuts and incentives in the new jobs and credit bill.

Owners can submit questions here until Sept. 27 at 5 p.m. and watch Mills answer the most popular topics online here. American Express OPEN Forum vice president Scott Roen will begin the session at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Mills is fresh off unveiling 10 projects this week that SBA will give nearly $6 million to as part of Innovative Economies , a pilot program designed to create jobs and stimulate innovation in defense technology, agriculture, aviation, energy and robotics, among other industries.

President Barack Obama launched the “Open for Questions” series in March 2009.
