McMorris Rodgers Praises Passage of JOBS Act

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, praised House passage of H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act today, which is bipartisan legislation that will jumpstart economic growth and restore opportunities to America’s job creators.

 

“I applaud the vote that took place on the House floor today,” said Rep. McMorris Rodgers.  “It’s a vote for hardworking Americans, a vote for small business owners, and a vote to unleash opportunity and ingenuity in this country.  Small businesses are the key to economic success – and right now, lack of credit opportunities, uncertainty and burdensome regulations are hurting entrepreneurs in Eastern Washington and all across the country.  This bill will change that.  It will spur the growth of startups and small businesses and pave the way for job creation at a time when our country needs it most.”

 

The JOBS Act, which is part of the House Republicans’ Plan for America’s Job Creators, includes bipartisan measures that will increase capital formation, grow small businesses, and enable more small businesses to go public and create jobs.  It will eliminate the very regulations that continue to stymie economic growth and job creation.

 

“As someone who helped operate my family-owned business in Kettle Falls, Washington for over a decade, I can say with certainty that this bill will expand opportunities for America’s job creators.  I encourage the Senate to act quickly and pass this legislation. It will make it easier for small business owners all across this country to create jobs and significantly reduce the bureaucratic burdens they currently face.  We must do everything we can to create jobs for hardworking American families.  Our time to act is now.  We cannot wait.”
