This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: Immigration Battle Threatens Another Shutdown

Members of Congress return to Washington this week following the Thanksgiving recess and many are wondering what will happen in the few days in session remaining in 2014. Partisan resentment over President Obama’s executive order on immigration reform has some even thinking that Republicans and Democrats will wage another spending battle with yet another threat of a federal government shutdown. Whether or not that will be the case remains to be seen over the next several days, but it is the topic of the only committee hearing of note this week.
