This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy (September 26 - 30)

Updated: Monday, September 26 // 7:52 pm

It passed a six-week bill by a 79-12 vote and also passed a one-week continuing resolution to give the House until October 4 to act.

The House remains on recess (for the time being) and was not scheduled to reconvene until Monday. It had approved its version of a continuing resolution on Friday that cut an environmental loan program run by the Energy Department that Democrats called a job creator. The Senate had rejected that measure on Friday.
