Joe Wallin's holiday legislative wish listBy http://profile.typepad.com/1237764140s22740 // December 22, 2012 in Legislation & Public Policy, Startup America
Joe Wallin just put up a fun but serious wish list on his blog.
He lists what he regards as the top four reforms Congress should take up in 2013 that would benefit startups in America.
He puts equity crowdfunding for nonaccredited investors and lifting of the ban on general solicitation at the top. Clearly, his focus is on reducing the friction entrepreneurs encounter when raising financing.
I'd put his number four item, immigration reform, at number two. And I might be inclined to leave capital gains tax benefits off the list entirely, at least this year.
But it's a great list, and Joe is someone to listen to. He thinks through lists like this much more deeply than most of us do.Screenshot: Jeff Van Campen / Flickr.
