On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. The legislation will help expand private capital investment in small businesses and provide more American entrepreneurs the opportunity to create jobs.
"Small businesses are the backbone of our country's economy. They are the key to economic growth and job creation," said Rep. Buerkle.
"The House's legislative agenda has been focused on creating a more business friendly environment for America's job creators by reducing burdensome government regulations and creating more economic certainty.
"While most of our past efforts have been hindered by a Senate that refuses to vote on any of the jobs bills we have passed, today the House came together, in bipartisan fashion, to support small businesses and economic growth. I encourage the Senate to follow the House's lead and pass this legislation.
"The solution to job creation and economic recovery is for the government to get out of the way so that America's job creators can be successful."
