H.R. 1105, the Small Business Capital Access and Job Preservation Act of 2013, would allow middle market investors access to capital and exempt investment advisers from having to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Currently under the Dodd-Frank Act, private equity fund managers are subject to time-intensive and capital-constraining registration requirements.
The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) is in support of this bill. Their press release is attached here.
