CBA Joint Comment Letter to SBA Affiliation Rule Proposal

Dear Mr. Kelley:
The National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL) and the Consumer Bankers
Association (CBA) (collectively “the Associations”) appreciate the opportunity to comment on the U.S.
Small Business Administration (SBA) proposed rule that would amend 13 CFR 121 to modify the rules
governing Affiliation as Applied to the Business Loan Programs.
The Associations strongly support the intention of the proposed regulatory changes – to enhance job
creation by increasing eligibility for loans made under the 7(a) and 504 program authorities. The
Associations also support the SBA’s efforts to reduce the regulatory burden and complexity of the loan
programs while maintaining the integrity of their purposes. We commend the SBA for addressing these
specific issues.
