Congressman Spencer Bachus (AL-6) today praised the introduction of the JOBS Act, a bipartisan package of bills that have previously been approved by the House Financial Services Committee. The JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act was unveiled during a press conference Tuesday afternoon at the U.S. Capitol.
Bachus is Chairman of the Financial Services Committee.
"Since the start of the 112th Congress, the Financial Services Committee has been a leader in advancing ideas that will jumpstart our economy and create jobs. The bills that make up the legislative package announced today came out of our committee with strong bipartisan support. They will empower small businesses and entrepreneurs to invest, hire and expand. They will help put Americans back to work. Once we get the JOBS Act through the House, it will once again be up to the Senate to decide whether to join us in helping small businesses create jobs or continue to stand by and do nothing," said Congressman Bachus.
The JOBS Act is designed to help startups and entrepreneurs get off the ground, access investors and create jobs. These initiatives are supported by bipartisan members on both sides of the Capitol, as well as the President's Jobs Council and the business community.
