Missouri Congressmen demand SBA workers return to the office

A group of congressmen are demanding that the federal Small Business Administration require their staff to return to the office instead of allowing them to constantly work from home. Missouri congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer and Mark Alford, both Republicans, signed onto a letter sent to SBA Administrator Isabella Guzman. The letter cites in part a visit by members of the U.S. House Committee on Small Business to the S-B-A’s headquarters in Washington, during which they “walked past rows and rows of empty desks.” Alford says Administrator Guzman owes the public an explanation on why she’s requesting 42 million dollars to fund a “nearly empty building.” Committee chair, Roger Williams of Texas, says the pandemic is over and it’s ‘past’ time the S-B-A fully return to work.
