GOP leaders said on Tuesday that the House is set to vote on a package of job-creation bills as soon as next week.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who spearheaded the effort to bundle six bipartisan bills together, told reporters on Capitol Hill that the chamber would vote on the “Jumpstart Our Business Startups,” or JOBS Act, in a little over a week.

Cantor, flanked by his fellow members of the House GOP leadership team, including Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and GOP Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), explained that the JOBS Act, in part, would “reflect the work of the president’s jobs council.”

He cited a White House statement earlier in the day calling for a “jumpstart” of business start-ups.
