This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: Regulatory Burdens, Capital and .Sucks


Members of the House return from a one week recess and have several hearings lined up to note. The House Committee on Financial Services tackles the regulatory over-reach of Dodd-Frank as well as legislative proposals to enhance capital formation and reduce regulatory burdens. Meanwhile, the Small Business Committee examines peer-to-peer lending and the Judiciary Committee listens to stakeholders on the .Sucks domain and guaranteeing trust and accountability on the internet. Other issues covered in the House include FCC reauthorization and protecting consumer financial data hackers.

On the Senate side, the focus on cybersecurity continues for the Foreign Relations Committee as well as the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
