Jump Start Our Business Startups Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. McINTYRE. Mr. Chairman, this important amendment addresses the emerging growth company definition for inflation, resulting in providing more flexibility for businesses.

The emerging growth company definition would ensure that our small businesses and start-ups thrive in our Nation's challenging economy and continue to create jobs that are so important to our citizens.

Mr. Chairman, our economy continues to struggle, and many Americans are struggling with dwindling family finances while too many are facing joblessness. And no one knows better that our true job creators across the Nation need to be able to have relief from burdensome regulations. The small businesses and companies that are being hit hard by these regulations need relief. It is imperative that we all work together to reduce regulations, to get rid of these onerous regulations on our small businesses and help them continue to create jobs and persevere.

My amendment, which the Congressional Budget Office has scored as having no cost to the Federal Government, reflects the needs and priorities of those small businesses and entrepreneurs across the Nation. By passing it today, we can truly make a difference for American families and businesses. Let's work together to rebuild our economy and put Americans back to work.

Mr. Chairman, I yield back the balance of my time.

Similar to other parts of the bill, the amount related to regulation flexibility will be adjusted for inflation to take into account increased costs that small companies are currently facing. This will allow for more businesses to be able to enjoy the regulation flexibility and help them start up and grow.
