Congressman Wally Herger (R-CA) today issued the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. This legislation combines several different bipartisan jobs bills that are supported by President Obama's jobs council and the business community. The President has indicated that he would sign it into law. You can read the details about the bill here. It passed the House by a vote of 390-23.
"Today's overwhelming passage of the JOBS Act demonstrates a bipartisan consensus that Congress must encourage job creation by eliminating government barriers that stifle our small businesses. This legislation will make it easier for small businesses, startups, and entrepreneurs to access much-needed capital and create jobs. I encourage the Senate to promptly pass this commonsense bill and send it to the President's desk."
