Action February 25 on the Washington State crowdfunding bill

Note from Bill: this is a guest post by  & Joe Wallin.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 25th, the Washington State Senate is having a hearing on HB 2023, titled the Washington Jobs Act of 2014.

HB 2023 is a state crowdfunding bill.

It would allow Washington startups to raise up to $1M during any 12 month period, from accredited and non-accredited investors. There are individual investor caps in the state bill that track the same individual investor caps in the federal JOBS Act.

If passed, the bill would be substantially more accessible for startups than the federal crowdfunding bill.
