The statement has been forwarded to the Senate along with this introduction:
Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest has joined the community of supporters of the NC JOBS Act. We received this letter of support from his office.
Thank you for your e-mail on H680, The Jump-Start Our Business Start-Ups (JOBS) Act. Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest believes that this bill is an important step towards growing North Carolina businesses by allowing start-up companies and companies that wish to expand the ability to quickly raise capital from smaller investments, often called crowd-sourcing or crowd-funding. As a result, businesses will be able to establish themselves in their market on an expedited basis and employ more North Carolinians sooner--all while having many citizens invested in the company's success. The Lieutenant Governor supports passage of this bill as a well-thought out mechanism to ease the burden on North Carolina's start-ups.
