Issue Spotlight: Startups

The POPVOX team was invited to attend the State of Entrepreneurship briefing last week. In conjunction with this event, the Kauffman Foundation released two reports: "State Startup Act" and "License to Grow." (POPVOX was one of several startups invited to attend the event.)

Inspired by the event, we pulled together a list of bills relating to startups. We hope you'll weigh in on these bills on POPVOX and share with your friends and networks.

Issue Spotlight: Startups

  • HR 2941 The Startup Expansion and Investment Act (and S 1962) makes the internal control reporting and assessment requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 optional for certain smaller companies.
  • S 1965 The Startup Act (and HR 3427) jump-starts economic recovery through the formation and growth of new businesses.
  • HR 3571 The Entrepreneur Startup Growth Act directs the Commissioner of Internal Revenue to establish a self-employment tax initiative grant program.
  • S 565 The Startup Visa Act (and HR 1114) establishes an employment-based immigrant visa for alien entrepreneurs who have received significant capital from investors to establish a business in the U.S.
  • S 2088 The Small Business Startup Support Act amends the tax code to permanently double the amount of start-up expenses entrepreneurs can deduct from their taxes.

Please keep in mind that highlighting a bill doesn't imply a POPVOX endorsement in any way. Rather, we're simply trying to offer one more way to stay informed of an overwhelmingly complex legislative system.
