  • President Obama signed the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010 (H.R. 5297) into law on September 27, 2010. The new law converts “shall” into “may” for HUBZone set-aside contracts, thus relieving contentions that HUBZone entities are entitled to a priority over other small business entities (e.g., 8(a), service-disabled veteran-owned, and women-owned small businesses).
