New Financial Legislation Takes Another Step

Four bills made their way through the Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee last week and this week were approved by the full Financial Services Committee .

The Congress had to throw in some attacks against the Securities and Exchange Commission.

"We cannot wait for the SEC to act when millions of Americans are out of work and small businesses can't access capital because of outdated regulations.  Small business accounts for the majority of new jobs created in the U.S.  The Committee took action today and passed common-sense ideas that will promote jobs," said Financial Services Chairman Spencer Bachus. "Capital formation is essential for a robust economy. The bills approved today provide the modernized regulatory environment that is needed to help small businesses create jobs."
