Press Release: New Congress Can Help Americans Prosper

WASHINGTON – The American Securities Association (ASA) released the following statement on the results of the 2018 midterm elections:

“The ASA looks forward to working with the new Congress to bolster small business capital formation, retirement security, customer privacy and investor protections necessary to boost economic confidence,” said ASA CEO Chris Iacovella. “As the country returns to a period of divided government, we believe our issues will garner significant bipartisan support to help more Americans prosper and responsibly move our country forward.”

“After such a hotly contested election, one area that can bring both sides together immediately is the need to help small businesses. The Senate can do this by swiftly passing the JOBS Act 3.0, a bill that passed the House with an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 406-4.”
