This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich on June 24, 2013 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

It is going to be a busy week in Washington, especially on the House side. The House Judiciary Committee has two days devoted to markup of a couple pieces of legislation – H.R. 1772 (the Legal Workforce Act) and H.R. 2131 (the Supplying Knowledge-based Immigrants and Lifting Levels of STEM Visas Act) – that focus on tighter employment verification and expanding H1-B visas. Of particular interest to those in the startup space might be the House Small Business Committee hearing on how mobile medical app entrepreneurs are changing the future of health care. Meanwhile, the Joint Economic Committee examines “smarter regulations.” Other topics include: impact of Obamacare on U.S. businesses, energy jobs, wireless technology and the history of minimum wage.
