This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: Committees Getting Organized

US Capitol Rotunda

Last week marked the official beginning of the 114th Congress. This week, a number of committees hold organizational meetings to determine subcommittee structure and assignments as well as adopt rules that dictate the formal procedures the committee follows. Once those are determined, committees will begin holding hearings on a regular basis. One hearing slated to take place on the House side this week is in the Ways and Means Committee, now led by Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) who moves over from his role as chair of the House Budget Committee in the 113th Congress. The hearing "will be focused on the state of the U.S. economy and policies that can promote job creation and economic growth."
