On July 17, 2018, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the “JOBS and Investor Confidence Act of 2018.” This bill is the third piece of the “Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act” legislation, and its aim is to reform capital markets to assist small businesses and entrepreneurs in accessing capital. The bill is set to be voted on by the Senate during the fall and will become effective 90 days after it is signed by the President.

While several years have passed since the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Jumpstart Our Business Start-Ups Act took effect, several high-profile provisions of each act have not yet been implemented as final rules await adoption by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This advisory reviews certain provisions of each act and summarizes other related securities regulation developments.

On Wednesday October 23, 2013, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) voted unanimously to propose regulations for equity crowdfunding, which will enable unaccredited U.S. investors to invest in startups and small businesses.
