Amends the Small Business Act to prohibit the Small Business Administration (SBA) from denying financial assistance to a small business solely because its primary operation is book, newspaper, magazine, greeting card, or history calendar publication or distribution, radio or television broadcasting, film, record, or video tape production or distribution, instruction, or a similar operation.

Permits such denial if the SBA determines after a hearing that assistance will be adverse to a legitimate public interest or used primarily to promote or criticize political or religious ideas.
