This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Last week, President Obama’s FY 2014 budget was released—with a number of proposals that could affect entrepreneurs and small business owners. This week, that budget gets a closer look during a number of committee hearings. Other topics include: comprehensive immigration reform, entitlement reform proposals, tax fraud and identity theft, regulatory burdens on community banks, patent litigation, antitrust laws, health care reform.
