Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today made the following statement after voting for the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, bipartisan legislation that will provide more access to capital and generate economic growth.
"The JOBS Act will make much-needed regulatory changes to help startups and entrepreneurs access public markets and create jobs," said Coats. "This is a small but significant bipartisan step toward jumpstarting our economy and getting unemployed and underemployed Americans back to work."
The JOBS Act passed the Senate 73 to 26. Similar legislation previously passed the House on March 8 in a 390-23 vote.
