03/27/12 Last week Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) made the following statement after voting for the Jump-start Our Business Start-ups (JOBS) Act, bipartisan legislation that will provide more access to capital and generate economic growth.

“The JOBS Act will make much-needed regulatory changes to help start-ups and entrepreneurs access public markets and create jobs,” said Coats. “This is a small but significant bipartisan step toward jump-starting our economy and getting unemployed and underemployed Americans back to work.”

The JOBS Act passed the Senate 73 to 26. Similar legislation previously passed the House on March 8 in a 390-23 vote.
