SEC Invites Comments; Posts Initial Input on JOBS Act Rulemaking

April 17th, 2012 · 4 Comments

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced on April 11 that it is accepting public input on its implementation of the newly enacted Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, Pub. L. No. 112-106. The Act includes provisions that require the SEC to undertake various initiatives, including rulemaking and studies touching on capital formation, crowdfunding, disclosure, and registration requirements.  The SEC is encouraging the public to comment on these issues even before the agency formally takes steps to implement the JOBS Act initiatives. The SEC intends to post on its website all of the comments submitted in response to its April 11 announcement.  The first comments have already been submitted. Here’s the page for submitting or viewing comments.

Advocacy’s contact person on this issue is Assistant Chief Counsel Dillon Taylor

    I don’t think the SEC has the power to help any small business growth. At this point, this late in the game, small businesses need less taxation and regulations to comply with. There are far too many laws and expenses to start a successful startup nowadays

    Agree with the above, there is not a terrific amount that the SEC can do aside from simplifying as much as possible and and cutting taxes on small business. If you give small and medium sized business the chance they will be the engine of your economy.
