U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Ben Cardin have formally asked the U.S. Small Business Administration about its plan to ensure small businesses are prepared to respond to possible disruptions caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
China’s potential to carry out a crippling attack against U.S. satellites has commanded attention from military strategists and diplomats for years, but Rubio’s warning was spurred by analysis of much more mundane systems: office printers, which could pose an unexpected intelligence threat. Rubio, while acknowledging that risk, emphasized that Beijing wants “state-sponsored” companies to spread throughout Western societies.
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio on Tuesday said he was confident the administration of President Donald Trump will extend a ban on oil and gas drilling off Florida, despite its enthusiasm for opening much of the country’s coasts to petroleum development.
This week, the office of U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., announced it will team up with the Florida Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network to host a Small Business Expo to help aspiring and existing small businesses in the Tampa Bay region. The event is free and open to the public with registration.
Under Rubio’s legislation, which Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) are co-sponsoring, big banks with assets over $50 billion would have their Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insurance removed if they refuse to provide services to federal contractors.
