ESOP Association praises legislation

The ESOP Association issued a press release praising the two bills introduced in December. “We are, needless to say, excited that Senator Sanders and three colleagues have put forward these two bills,” said J. Michael Keeling, president of The ESOP Association. “S. 2909 seeks to expand programs that several states have established to help business owners create employee-owned companies. S. 2914 is a bold new approach proposing, for the first time, a Federal loan guarantee program to save jobs in certain situations when the result of the financing would be a company owned 50% or more by the employees.”
