H.R. 3784 will give small businesses high-level representation as it will establish an Office of the Small Business Advocate at the SEC, formalize the current SEC Advisory Committee on Small & Emerging Companies as a permanent Small Business Advisory Committee, and bring the annual Government-Business Forum on Small Business Capital Formation under the authority of the newly formed Office.
"Strengthening capital markets and improving capital access is critical to small business growth and getting robust entrepreneurship back on track. This legislation makes important changes that will provide a boost to capital formation and investment. Entrepreneurs and small business owners look forward to President Obama quickly signing the legislation into law," added Kerrigan.
