                  ered the same, report favorably thereon without amendment and
                  recommend that the bill do pass.
                                       PURPOSE AND SUMMARY
                    On July 10, 2018, Representative Randy Hultgren introduced
                  H.R. 6319, the Expanding Investment in Small Businesses Act to
                  requires the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to
                  study the current diversified fund limit threshold for diversified
                  mutual funds-10 percent of the voting shares in an individual
                  company-and determine whether such threshold limits capital for-
                  mation. The SEC is to report its findings to Congress and then rec-
                  ommend whether Congress should amend the Investment Company
                  Act of 1940. To conduct this study, the SEC may take public com-
                  ments, and shall issue a report of its findings to Congress-includ-
                  ing any legislative recommendations to increase the 10 percent
                  threshold-within 180 days of enactment.
