This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: House on Recess, Senate Examines Drones

After a flurry of hearings on Capitol Hill last week – including the House Judiciary Committee hearing featuring FBI Director James Comey and Bruce Sewell, senior vice president and general counsel for Apple – things are relatively quiet this week. Members of the House of Representatives are on recess and back in their home states for a District Work Period. Meanwhile, there are two hearings of note in the Senate.

The Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship tackles the issue of drones and their implications for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Meanwhile, the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works examines the role of state governments as in the regulatory process.
