This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich on March 04, 2013 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

While most attention on Capitol Hill these days centers on the budget sequester—what it means and who is to blame – there are a number of committee hearings that should be of interest. In particular, the House Judiciary Committee has a busy day planned for Tuesday—with three subcommittee hearings on American competitiveness—and another to follow on Thursday. Topics covered in those and other hearings include: immigration reform, patent litigation, the impact of health care reform on small business, wasteful spending, cyber-security and more.
