House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after the House passed the House amendment to the JOBS and Investor Confidence Act of 2018 (S. 488).
“After years of sluggish growth and stagnant wages, the economy is booming and better off now thanks to our work to cut taxes and rein in harmful regulations. We want to keep that momentum going. That’s why today the People’s House passed another package of jobs bills to break down barriers to investment. The JOBS and Investor Confidence Act of 2018 will empower our nation’s startups, small businesses, and entrepreneurs to innovate and take risks so they can succeed in a 21st Century economy built for growth. I commend Financial Services Committee Chair Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) for his work on this package and look forward to seeing this bill pass the Senate and being signed into law.”
Note: To share all the ways Americans and their families are better off now, Chair McMorris Rodgers wrote in the Washington Examiner:
“For the last decade, Americans were asking, “Where are the jobs?” Today, companies are coming home, 3.7 million new jobs have been created since President Trump’s election, and there are historically low levels of unemployment. It’s a comeback story that we said was possible in our Better Way agenda, and over the past two years, we delivered. As a result, Americans are better off now.
“After years of sluggish growth, we said we would make America competitive again and ensure it’s the best place in the world to live, work, start a business, and raise a family. That’s why when President Trump was elected, we immediately got to work to unleash economic growth with more than a dozen bills that repealed Obama-era red tape and eliminated billions of dollars in regulatory costs. These bills are now law, and they are putting power back in the hands of our farmers, community bankers, small business owners, and everyone in between.”
