This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: 114th Congress Begins

US Capitol Rotunda

Today, members of Congress return to Washington--or in some cases, move in for the first time. The 114th Congress will formally be sworn in tomorrow and bring in a much-discussed Republican majority to the Senate while strengthening its hold on the House. Between the formal swearing in ceremony and some housekeeping issues, there aren't many committee hearings anticipated (a full schedule for the House has yet to be released). Currently, there is only one committee hearing scheduled with the Senate Energy Committee taking up the Keystone XL Pipeline on Wednesday.
