WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep Charlie Dent (PA-15) today issued the following statement after voting for H.R. 3606, the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act:

“Small businesses will play a pivotal role in our nation’s economic recovery and the JOBS Act is the kind of support these job creators should expect from Washington. Easing burdensome regulatory requirements and expanding access to capital will undoubtedly increase the ability of small businesses in the 15th District and across the country to grow and flourish. I am hopeful the overwhelming bipartisan support this legislation received in the House illustrates a commitment to advancing policies that help revive our economy and get more Americans back to work. It is imperative the Senate not delay its consideration of H.R. 3606 and work diligently to approve the measure.”
