This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich on September 16, 2013 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

As the search continues for a possible second suspect in the Washington Navy Yard shootings, and the Senate cancelled its Monday session, Capitol Hill nervously looks to the week ahead. Things remain quiet on the topic of startups and entrepreneurship in Senate committees for the week ahead. On the House side, the Small Business Committee looks at "Private Sector Initiatives to Educate Small Business Owners and Entrepreneurs" and others focus on intellectual property, regulatory flexibility and PPACA / "Obamacare." Meanwhile, the Joint Economic Committee hopes to shine a light on the "Economic Costs of Debt-Ceiling Brinkmanship."
