H.R. 2864: Improving Access to Capital Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 2864 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 2864 would allow SEC reporting companies, which already meet the SEC’s ongoing disclosure requirements, to be able to take advantage of Regulation A+. The JOBS Act created a Regulation A+ offering exemption to allow small companies to raise up to $50 million online, directly from the public without a full SEC public offering. Regulation A+ offerings are publicly filed with the SEC, and allow investors and regulators a view into the company’s financial disclosures. The regulation did not allow companies that are currently reporting the SEC to take advantage of this type of offering exemption. H.R. 2864 would allow those companies to take advantage of Regulation A+ offering exemptions.
