This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Posted by: Mark Marich on June 17, 2013 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

If you thought the immigration debate in Congress was going to be smooth sailing, a markup this week in the House Judiciary Committee promises a choppier course. Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte has scheduled a markup for the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement (SAFE) Act—a strict enforcement bill that could change the tenor of discussions. Other topics slated to be covered in hearings this week include: advanced manufacturing, energy priorities and opportunities for small business, STEM education, reauthorization of the Workforce Investment Act, health costs and economic recovery in Zimbabwe.
