Congressman Runyan (R-NJ) issued the following statement after the passage of H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act.
"I was pleased to be a part of the bipartisan coalition that passed H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act, also known as the JOBS Act. Our nation has always been a country of innovators but unfortunately in recent years we have seen the number of business start-ups decline to a 17 year low. This is why I voted twice to pass this bipartisan legislation, which helps create and foster a business environment that will allow startups and small businesses to grow and create jobs American workers need. It is my sincere hope that the House and Senate will continue to work in a bipartisan manner to pass more legislation to help American workers."
The Senate amended version of H.R. 3606 passed the House of Representatives today by a vote of 380 to 41.
