Business Resources


In Minnesota, businesses are the economic engines of our communitites - and even if you don't own one yourself, chances are you or someone you love depends on the goods, services, or employment that a Minnesota business provides. From advocating to flexibility and accountability in federal relief programs to helping you get answers from the Small Business Administration, Rep. Phillips and his staff will do their best to keep you informed and are focused on the mission to get us through this as healthy, economically sound, and prepared for the future as possible. We shall overcome - together.
