Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today joined his House colleagues in voting for passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act), which removes government barriers to job creation and promotes economic prosperity.

“As we struggle with a sluggish economy, we need initiatives that will help boost job creation in America,” said Lucas. “I am glad that the JOBS Act passed the House today. This bill will help improve access to the capital markets for all small businesses, and I believe this is the best way to promote a healthy economy where jobs can be created. Allowing businesses more access to capital will allow them the opportunity to thrive.

 “Additionally, this bill helps revitalize the financial markets to help create business growth, promote innovation and maintain economic competiveness in America. These initiatives are key to putting hard working Americans back in a hard working job, and it is my hope that this legislation will be sent to the Senate for passage and signed into law by President Obama.”
