  • Is there a way you structure or frame the angel-related issues within the public policy spectrum?
  • What are some of the current top priorities in public policy for the ACA?
  • Late last year, congress passed the PATH act, related to capital gains, and the SEC recommended tweaks to the accredited investor definition. Can you give us an overview of the updates on each of these issues?
