This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy: Exploring Regulatory Burdens

While the Republican Party is still choosing a successor before Congressman John Boehner steps down at the end of the month, the bigger issue on Capitol Hill this week is what will happen with the debt ceiling and what that might do to the US global standing.

Meanwhile, there are several committee hearings of note. The House Financial Services Committee examines legislative proposals to reduce regulatory burdens on entrepreneurs and small business owners while the House Small Business Committee takes a second look at the impact of the Europay, Mastercard, Visa (EMV) chip payment system. 

Other topics covered by committee hearings and meetings this week include:  cybersecurity, federal regulation of biotechnology and the Export-Import Bank.
