Capitol_dome

The House Financial Services Committee passed H.R. 3818, the Private Fund Investment Advisers Registration Act, introduced by Congressman Paul E. Kanjorski (D-PA), Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government Sponsored Enterprises. The Committee passed H.R. 3818 by a vote of 67-1.

The press release summarizes the bill as “Everyone Registers. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.” But the text of the bill appears to still have an exclusion from registration for venture capital firms.
