This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

It looks to be a busy week for hearings on Capitol Hill -- at least in the House committees. The House Committee on Financial Services examines the impact of Dodd-Frank's Volcker Rule on job creators while the Small Business Committee discusses how the SEC's crowdfunding proposal will impact entrepreneurs and small business owners. Other topics covered by House hearings include: copyright protection; peer-to-peer business; and PPACA / Obamacare. In the only relevant hearing scheduled (at the time of publication) on the Senate side, drones and the future of unmanned aviation -- along with the inherent safety and privacy concerns -- get a look from the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.
