Earlier this week, I managed debate on H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 390-23. The JOBS Act is a rare bi-partisan legislative package that will help small businesses and entrepreneurs access vital equity capital and help put Americans back to work. Please click here to view video of my speech on the floor of the House in support of the JOBS Act.

Jobs are issue number one for the American people. The passage of the JOBS Act is a great step toward the eliminating the tangle of red tape that has been holding back entrepreneurship and job creation. I believe the best way to fight for policies that will help job growth is to use real life stories from small business owners and families in the 5th District of Texas. If your business has been hurt by government policies that were created to help a politically-favored industry, or if you have pulled yourself up by your bootstraps, worked hard, and achieved success without the government’s help, I want to hear from you. Please visit my website to share your stories of the government picking winners and losers.

Yours respectfully,

Jeb Hensarling
Member of Congress
