In April 2012, President Obama signed H.R. 3606 or the JOBS Act, and for entrepreneurs the most relevant piece in this legislation is on crowdfunding. The JOBS Act contains the original language from the House of Representatives passed The Entrepreneur Access to Capital Act amending the Securities Act of 1933. The bill would allow a new registration exemption for companies raising crowdfunded financing. Companies may raise up to $1 million within a 12-month period without registering the securities with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
