Pete Sessions Applauds Passage of JOBS Act

Today, I released the following statement regarding House passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startup (JOBS) Act:
I applaud the passage of this common-sense legislation that will encourage small businesses – the engine of our economy – to invest and grow by increasing their access to capital. By removing burdensome government red-tape that stifles innovation, American entrepreneurs can once again thrive and create much-needed jobs.
Since the 112th Congress began, House Republicans have worked relentlessly on pro-growth proposals to address our nation’s staggering unemployment rate and reenergize the free enterprise system. I urge the Senate to act quickly on this legislation, as well as the more than 30 House-passed bills that have been awaiting action for months, to help struggling Americans find work and put our nation back on a path towards economic prosperity.
