Sen. Moran Statement on White House Shuttering of Jobs Council


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement today in reaction to White House's announcement that President Obama will not renew its Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, which expires today:

"President Obama's decision to shut down his Council on Jobs and Competitiveness is puzzling, as it comes at a time when the economy is shrinking and more than 12 million Americans can't find jobs," Sen. Moran said. "We must tap into the experience and knowledge of our nation's business leaders if we're going to strengthen the economy and get Americans back to work. In fact, many of the provisions in Startup Act 2.0 -- my legislation to jumpstart the economy through the creation and growth of news businesses -- are supported by the Jobs Council. I am very disappointed the President failed to make the advice of the Jobs Council a priority. Congress must step in and work to pass the bipartisan ideas included in Startup Act 2.0 when it is re-introduced in the coming weeks."
