Provides that an issuer may make an offering or sale of securities through the use of one or more qualified Internet portals, subject to certain requirements, including that (i) the Internet portal shall at all times be owned by a corporation or other legal entity which is either organized under the laws of, or is otherwise qualified to do business in, this State; (ii) the Internet portal shall establish and maintain commercially reasonable measures to limit access to any information concerning an offering or sale of the subject securities to residents of this State; and (iii) the Internet portal shall establish and maintain a secure method of communication through the Internet portal itself that will permit potential investors to communicate with one another and with representatives of the issuer about the offering. Requires the Secretary of State to collect a $100 fee for securities offered or sold under the exemption created under this amendatory Act; and a $300 fee for the registration and renewal of a qualified Internet portal.
