Summary:

Members of the Senate are still on Thanksgiving recess but the House is back in action.

The Small Business Capital Access and Job Preservation Act (H.R. 1105) would effectively exempt private equity firms from registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Other topics covered by committee hearings include: the bankruptcy code, small business lending, regulatory burdens on small financial institutions, the impacts of the health care law on small employers and government regulation in a changing energy landscape.
