This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

While all eyes in the Senate are on the ongoing immigration debate, the House has a handful of committee hearings of interest. The “changing landscape of patent law” brought on by the American Invents Act and its “effects on small firms” are the focus of a Small Business Committee hearing. Topics covered in other hearings include: small business and pass-through entity tax reform; data centers and the cloud; copyright principles; and Keystone XL and small business job growth.
