Hoyer Floor Statement on the JOBS Act

I rise in strong support of these six pieces of legislation, which have been put together and called a jobs bill. I think they will have a positive effect on economic growth in our country. I think they are good bills.  I particularly support the Himes bill, currently called the Quayle bill, but I’m pleased to support it, by whoever's name it might have on it. Four out of the six components of this legislation have already been previously considered and passed overwhelmingly, so this is a recycle – but doing a good thing twice is not bad, so I’m going to vote for it and I’m going to be enthusiastic about voting for it. As a matter of fact, I suggested a number of these ideas on our side of the aisle.
