New York, March 22, 2012 – NYSE Euronext (NYX) applauds the bipartisan efforts of our leaders in Washington to facilitate capital formation to enable young, innovative emerging companies to access the capital they need to grow and create jobs. The Senate passage of the Jobs Act, which maintains investor protections, will spur the growth of our economy and jumpstart job creation in America. We hope continued bipartisan leadership will carry this bill to the White House for final passage into law.
