Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act

of 2012

Origination Date:

April 5, 2012

Important Elements

  • The Act requires the SEC to write rules and issue studies on capital formation, disclosure and registration requirements.
  • Cost-effective access to capital for companies of all sizes plays a critical role in our national economy, and companies seeking access to capital should not be hindered by unnecessary or overly burdensome regulations.
  • We look forward to hearing the public's views as we write rules that both facilitate capital formation and promote investor protection.
