This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

The recent return of Congressional leaders from a 5-week recess won’t be long-lived. With the heated presidential campaign in full-swing, members are focusing their current efforts in Washington on campaign-related events—and trying to figure out how soon they can escape back to their home states and districts to focus on campaigning there. That escape may come as soon as the end of this week. In the meantime, there are a number of hearings that may be of interest to our readers.
