Kauffman Foundation Startup Act on Floor of Senate

Senator  Jerry Moran ( R-Kan) cites Kauffman’s Startup Act provisions as model for creating an environment that will encourage new businesses to create jobs

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) vowed to introduce new legislation that would create an environment for new firms to start, grow, and create jobs in a speech delivered on the floor of the U.S. Senate yesterday. Citing many of the ideas in the Kauffman Foundation’s Startup Act of 2011 , Moran presented “pro-growth principles” that he said would give job creators the confidence to hire more people, including:

•    Removing barriers to entrepreneurial growth

•    Moving research for the university lab to the marketplace

•    Attracting and retaining entrepreneurial talent

•    Encouraging pro-growth policies at the state and local levels

Kauffman’s Startup Act is a set of non-partisan ideas to jump-start the ailing U.S. economy and increase job creation by accelerating the growth of startups and young businesses.
