Date: 1/13/2012
Written By: Federal Times, By David Jackson and Sean Reilly

Excerpt: President Obama said he is elevating the Small Business Administration to Cabinet-level status Friday and asked Congress for authority to merge SBA and other agencies that handle business and trade functions into a single department…. "My guess is that this is probably [dead on arrival]," said Bill Reinsch, a former Senate staffer and Commerce Department official in the Clinton administration who now heads the National Foreign Trade Council. "I don't think the House will be disposed to give him this authority, regardless of the merits of his proposal."
