To unleash opportunities for Main Street small businesses, innovators, and job creators and to ensure they have the resources they need to grow
, the House of Representatives passed the JOBS and Investor Confidence Act of 2018
. By passing this legislative package, we're empowering confidence to invest in growing American firms.
Three bipartisan bills that I introduced were included in The JOBS and Investor Confidence Act:
- Fighting for seniors. Unfortunately, our senior citizens who have spent years saving and investing are losing their life savings and investments to financial scammers. I'm fighting every day for our Hoosier senior citizens to ensure the hard-earned dollars they've invested in the public markets are protected and to fulfill the Social Security and Medicare promises we've made to them. (Senior Security Act)
- Ensuring costly regulations don't stand in the way of innovation. Currently, federal regulations are preventing certain biotechnology companies from investing in cutting-edge medical research and development. I reached across the aisle to pass a bill to ensure government is not standing in the way of medical cures. (Fostering Innovation Act)
- Improving access to capital for startups. Turning dreams into reality and growing a startup company is what the American Dream is all about. This bipartisan legislation ensures that small American startups can access the capital they need to expand. (Developing and Empowering our Aspiring Leaders Act)
Fighting for a strong Hoosier economy and opportunity for all is my top priority as your representative. As economic confidence continues to rise, I look forward to more Americans having a chance to achieve the American Dream.
