The House Committee on Small Business has raised concerns about a memorandum of understanding between the Biden administration and the state of Michigan that aims to register voters with a political agenda in mind. The MOU outlines coordination between Michigan and the Biden administration in promoting civic engagement and voter registration in Michigan. The committee is worried that this agreement may be unconstitutional and an improper use of taxpayer funds. They released the documentation for transparency, revealing that SBA employees will undergo training on how to register voters. The committee believes that SBA’s focus on voter registration distracts from its mission of supporting small businesses on Main Street.

The committee accuses the SBA of acting as a “campaign arm” for Biden’s reelection by partnering with Michigan on voter registration efforts. They released maps overlaying former SBA events with demographic data to suggest possible areas where voter registration efforts will target. The investigation found that most SBA outreach events took place in counties with high populations of DNC target demographics. Additionally, Michigan counties with the largest voter registration increases have high populations of young and Black voters, key voting blocs for the left. GOP lawmakers have criticized the SBA for prioritizing voter registration over its official duties, calling it a misuse of taxpayer dollars.

The coordination between the SBA and Michigan stems from a 2021 executive order from Biden directing federal agencies to promote access to voting. Some believe that the administration is using the SBA to register voters in swing states like Michigan, which may play a critical role in the upcoming election. The House committee has subpoenaed SBA officials who failed to provide information and documents related to the program. The Biden administration has not responded to requests for comment on the matter. The committee is committed to investigating the SBA’s voter registration and electioneering efforts to ensure transparency and accountability.

GOP lawmakers have expressed outrage over the SBA’s tactics and are calling for an end to electioneering activities on behalf of President Biden. They accuse the SBA of focusing more on voter registration than fulfilling its mission of supporting small businesses. Senators have pledged to continue shining a light on the SBA and exposing what they view as misuse and abuse of taxpayer dollars. The committee is demanding transparency from the SBA and is seeking answers regarding the agency’s involvement in voter registration efforts. The SBA’s actions have raised concerns about the politicization of government agencies and the potential impact on the democratic process.
