house Bill H.R. 4855

Reforming Crowdfunding Regulations

Argument in favor

Congress needs to pass this bill to prevent burdensome regulations from standing in the way of investment crowdfunding. With these reforms crowdfunding will be a more attractive fundraising option for businesses, which will help them grow and create jobs.

Crowdfunding engages small investors in supporting projects they believe in while receiving the benefit of potential earnings. It is a form of investment particularly suited to encouraging direct shared responsibility for the development of products and services that world economies need. We need to begin actively engaging in this method of support for new ideas and technologies.

I feel like consumers will benefit since things will try to accommodate crowd demands more directly.

Argument opposed

There’s no need to make changes to the regulatory structures for crowdfunding at this time. Eventually the changes this bill suggests may need to be considered, but Congress should leave crowdfunding alone so these regulations can take effect.

Governments needs to leave this alone. It's all a response to their fear of crowd funded initiatives like the Bernie Sanders movement.

No, we already removed the Glass Act that protected us, now you want more. Tell Hillary's friends the answer is no.

Existing regulations have been relaxed for crowdfunding already, and the implications and effects of those actions have yet to be felt.

    Crowdfunding is an excellent source to fuel innovation. Raising the cap, and ensuring that the system can't be exploited is an excellent step. 👍🏼

    I don't know why there are so mane regs on this subject. If you own a small business and want to get investors you should be able to get them from any source you want. This is called entrepreneurship and more people should be involved.

    Crowdfunding is becoming a terrific method of raising capital without borrowing money. I support changes like this which make it possible for more small business to crowdfund.

    Of course this is a good idea. More power to the people. SEC Regulations sound ridiculous.

    The government doesn't need to regulate every aspect of human life.

    Congress has not shown expertise in regulating the financial market. Why believe the have any now? If anything, Congress should pass a resolution asking the SEC to review and, if prudently possible, (1) streamline and clarify the regulations and (2) provide a concise statement to wouldbe issuers what their options are and how to do a crowdfunding issuance.

    I'm for anything that limits govt involvement. What liberals can never grasp is that WE make the best decisions about how to spend our money.

    Sounds like a plan for underfunded entrepreneurs to develop a product that would never reach a market. Me? I would like to touch or feel a product before spending hard earned cash.

    Crowdfunding usually affects small businesses or start ups he most. With that in mind they should loosen regulations on how crowd funding to ensure these start ups or small businesses can flourish and positively impact our economy.
