H.R. 79: HALOS Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 79 in the House.

H.R. 79 amends the Securities Act of 1933 to clarify that certain startup companies are able to give presentations about their company and host certain types of events, like a “demo day,” without violating certain SEC investment solicitation bans. The bill attempts to ensure that startup companies do not inadvertently violate SEC regulations governing general solicitation of potential investors.
