This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich on October 03, 2011 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

While the original House and Senate calendars called for recess last week, members of the Senate remained in Washington to work on a funding bill that would avert a government shutdown. 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. Members of the House address HR 2608 today (October 3) at 5:00 pm.

Hearings scheduled for the week include a look at immigration policies pertaining to foreign graduates of US universities with advanced science degrees, as well as a review of the country’s economic outlook by the Joint Economic Committee.
