This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

The big topic on Capitol Hill this week is protecting consumer privacy with one committee hearing in the House and three in the Senate. In late 2013, Target suffered a massive data breach affecting up to 110 million customers and they will be represented at two of the hearings — along with representatives from Neiman Marcus, Symantec, Consumers Union, U.S. Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, Federal Trade Commission and more. Other topics covered by hearings this week include: the 2014 budget, inefficiencies in federal programs for small businesses, Dodd-Frank’s Volcker Rule, financial research and the commercialization of space.
