Roskam Applauds Introduction of JOBS Act to Help Small Businesses
WASHINGTON – Chief Deputy Whip Peter Roskam (IL-06) today issued the following statement applauding the introduction of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, a bipartisan legislative initiative designed to help new businesses, starts ups, and entrepreneurs get up and running in order to better succeed and create jobs.
"Right now, excessive Washington bureaucrat-imposed regulations are preventing American innovation, stalling economic growth, and killing jobs. With national unemployment still stuck at over 8 percent, Washington has to stop being a barrier to job creation so entrepreneurs and small businesses can succeed, grow, and hire in the U.S. The bipartisan JOBS Act does just that by removing barriers many start ups face to present a less burdensome path forward, like Whip Kevin McCarthy's bill to repeal the solicitation ban on companies trying to raise capital. Small businesses are the engine of the American economy; let's stop Washington from hurting them."
