House Passes Bipartisan JOBS Bill

The House overwhelmingly passed a modest, bipartisan jobs bill on Thursday by a 390-23 margin.

The GOP-led legislation aims to loosen Securities and Exchange Commission rules in an effort to encourage small business job growth. The White House and leaders of both parties support the bill, but Democrats say its impact will be relatively small.
