Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Marsha Blackburn (TN-7) issued the following statement in support of H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act), which was approved by the House today. This bipartisan legislation will remove government barriers to job creation and economic activity, and help entrepreneurs gain access to capital needed to expand, hire, and invest.

"Republicans continue to offer solutions that will undo the damage that has been done by the Obama economy. Americans know that the best recipe to create more jobs and innovation is less regulation, less taxation, and less litigation. The JOBS Act removes burdensome government barriers and will create an environment that promotes job creation and allows our small businesses to grow. I applaud Congressman Fincher for his work in crafting this legislation that will jumpstart our economy and restore opportunities for America's primary job creators -- our small businesses, startups and entrepreneurs."
