On March 15th, 2012 Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Chair of the Senate Small Business Committee, read a letter from Launcht aloud on the Senate Floor as a resounding conclusion to her speech that day. Referring to Launcht by name, our support for the bipartisan Merkley, S. Brown, Bennet, Landrieu crowdfunding compromise bill was officially entered into the congressional record (page 5 of the PDF, middle column, starting with “Finally Madam President”). You can also see the Senator’s speech recorded here, skip the slider ahead to 5:56:00.
We are honored that Senator Landrieu appreciated our position and that we were heard. Thank you Senator Landrieu for all your efforts to bring the best policy possible to bear on the important issue of small business growth and jobs in America.
