I believe that you are creating unnecessary regulation upon a market that is thriving and creating new jobs. More and more the government is putting their hands into the public sector to further impede the ability for common citizens to create and garner wealth. Not only are you creating additional laws that the common citizen may need to hire someone to understand and follow through with but you are ignoring the basis of these crowd funding websites that they are completely voluntary and funds are generously donated at a known risk to the contributor.
I plead with you to not pass this law and instead concentrate on the more pressing matters at hand like persecuting those responsible for the wall street debacle and the to big to fail banks. Do what is right and persecute these criminals instead of taking the fight to the citizens who are trying to make a decent living.
