I visited a Delaware County Wawa store in Glen Mills April 10 to celebrate the recent passage of the JOBS Act, which contains three job-creating bills I authored.
The passage -- and subsequent signing into law -- of the JOBS Act is a victory for growing companies across the country. By lessening the regulatory burden on entrepreneurs, small businesses, and other job creators, this legislation represents a limited-government solution for spurring economic growth without using taxpayer dollars.
In our struggling economy, quicker entry into the market, greater access to capital, and reduced regulations will help small companies expand, hire new workers and create thousands of new jobs. I am pleased Congress was able to work together in a bipartisan fashion, and I appreciated the opportunity to help craft this bill.
Many companies, including Pennsylvania's own Wawa, will be able to grow and hire new workers because of the reforms included in the JOBS Act.
U.S Representative Pat Meehan (R-Pa.), Wawa Chief Executive Officer Howard Stoeckel and Wawa President Chris Gheysens also joined me at the Wawa event.
