This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

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.

The House of Representatives is in recess this week while most members have returned to their home districts as they continue to communicate with their constituents about jobs and the economy.

Meanwhile in the Senate, the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 gets a one-year review with Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner in the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee. Also, Harold Bradley of the Kauffman Foundation testifies on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing & Urban Affairs.
