CEA Applauds Startup Act 2.0
Arlington, VA – 05/22/2012 – The following statement can be attributed to Michael Petricone, senior vice president of government affairs of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®:
“The Startup Act 2.0 is a package of common sense approaches that will spur innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation. It will allow foreign-born, U.S.-educated immigrants to remain in America and use their training to build businesses and create domestic jobs. It also clears away a variety of anachronistic regulations that have made it difficult for small businesses to expand and thrive. 
“Supporting innovation is not a partisan issue – it’s an American priority. This bill is supported by respected, forward-thinking members of Congress from both parties. It is an essential counterpart to the equally bipartisan JOBS Act, which was overwhelmingly passed by the Senate. We urge the Senate to move quickly and enact the Startup Act 2.0.”
