Startup Visa Act, aka the National Water Naming Reform for Post Veterans Research Startups

Apropos of my momentarily upbeat feeling today caused by the introduction of Senate legislation relating to a “startup visa”, a friend sent me a list of the 290 bills that have passed Congress this year and are awaiting action by the Senate. Ouch.

Thoroughly demoralized, I made a Wordle tag cloud of their names, which you can see below. It convinced me that maybe it’s a good thing Kerry/Lugar dumped the initial name “National Water Naming Reform for Post Veterans Research” and went with the much less trendy “Startup Visa Act” instead.
