I would have had to register with the SEC and incur all of the associated extra costs and legal fees just to solicit investment from wealthy and sophisticated millionaire investors.
This regulatory obstacle is actively preventing job creation, which is why Iíve introduced legislation to repeal this burdensome solicitation prohibition. My bill, the Access to Capital for Job Creators Act, will help entrepreneurs and small-business owners access the capital they need to be innovative, dynamic and, ultimately, become the thing our economy needs most right now: job creators.
This legislation is simply one step of the many that are needed to promote job creation and economic growth, but itís a vital step forward. By unshackling entrepreneurs and small businesses from excessive federal regulations, our economyís job-creation engine will once again put us back on the path to prosperity.
