This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: The President's FY 2016 Budget

President Obama's proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2016--calling for $3.99 trillion in spending while bringing in $3.53 trillion in revenue--is the center of attention on Capitol Hill this week. While it isn't expected to go very far in the Republican controlled Congress, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and other administration officials will appear before a number of committee hearings to run through the details. Other topics covered by hearings include: immigration reform, cyber-threats and data breaches.
