U.S. Chamber Applauds House Passage of the Bipartisan JOBS Act
Urges the Senate to Follow Suit So Americans Can Get Back To Work
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President for Government Affairs, Bruce Josten, issued the following statement today regarding House passage of the bipartisan JOBS Act:
“The House today took a strong bi-partisan step to allow America’s entrepreneurs to lead the way for sustained economic growth and job creation. Small businesses and emerging growth companies have always been at the heart of dynamic growth. The JOBS Act provides important reforms and lessens regulatory burdens that will remove obstacles that have prevented business formation in the numbers we have come to expect. We urge the Senate to take up the JOBS Act expeditiously so Americans can get back to work”
