Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Workforce Development will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

While small businesses play an outsized role in local economies and job creation, they have been particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure a robust recovery, Congress will need to consider ways to fill the entrepreneurship gaps that have existed for years in low-income and rural areas. This hearing will focus on H.R. 1226, the Next Generation Entrepreneurship Corps Act, which would establish a Corps to make an investment in these Main Street businesses, and give Members the opportunity to hear from experts about how this program could potentially help with the economic recovery.
