Ribble Supports JOBS Act

Mar 8, 2012 Issues: Budget

Washington, D.C. – Representative Reid Ribble (WI-08) today released the following statement on the passage of H.R 3606, the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act. This bipartisan legislative package focuses on incentivizing small businesses through several areas that include reducing regulations and improving investment flexibility. It passed the House on a vote of 390-23.

“Small businesses need to be the focus of job creation,” said Ribble. “This legislation will help to incentivize our nation’s small businesses so they can focus on what they do best: creating new jobs. There are many people in Wisconsin and across the country who want to start a business and bring their innovative ideas to fruition, but the federal government, through high taxes and burdensome regulations, keeps standing in the way. I owned a small business for more than 30 years and know how difficult it can be to run a successful business while keeping up with the constant implementation of higher costs and regulations coming out of Washington. I will continue to do everything I can to support northeast Wisconsin entrepreneurs and innovators and this legislation is a great step in that effort.”
