This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy (September 26 - 30)

While the original House and Senate calendars called for recess for this week, members of the Senate remained in Washington to work on a funding bill that would avert a government shutdown at the end of this week. It passed a six-week bill by a 79-12 vote and also passed a one-week continuing resolution to give the House until October 4 to act.

The House remains on recess (for the time being) and was not scheduled to reconvene until Monday. It had approved its version of a continuing resolution on Friday that cut an environmental loan program run by the Energy Department that Democrats called a job creator. The Senate had rejected that measure on Friday.
