Under current law, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) registers and approves marketplaces for trading securities (known as national securities exchanges) and regulates aspects of their operation. H.R. 5877 would allow current national securities exchanges to register a venture exchange for trading stocks of certain small companies. Under the legislation, any newly formed exchanges could elect to operate as venture exchanges at the time they register with the SEC.

Finally, H.R. 4638 would authorize the SEC to create an Office of Venture Exchanges.
