Ohio (US) Senator looking to help businesses impacted by lockout

http://bluejacketsxtra.dispatch.com/...-steps-in.html

Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown will be contacting the Small Business Administration to get help for businesses impacted by lockout. (Guessing his emphasis will be on Columbus businesses, but could spread to all US metro areas impacted.)

Quote:
It's unclear what form that help would take, but area business told The Dispatch last week that they've eliminated some positions and scaled back the working hours of others because the the loss of hockey home games has significantly curtailed crowds on weeknights.
Brown also wants to work with local leaders -- the Blue Jackets, the Greater Columbus Sports Commission, etc. -- to lobby the NHL for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game. (There likely won't be a 2014 All-Star Game because of the Olympics in Socchi, Russia.)

With the National Hockey League lockout approaching its fourth month and small businesses across the country on ice, the U.S. Small Business Administration is prepared to help the affected local businesses. In the 23 cities that host NHL teams, SBA representatives will be reaching out over the coming weeks to business owners to provide counseling sessions and help businesses work through this difficult time.
