Yes, Regulation A+ (Reg A+) was introduced as part of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, which was signed into law in 2012. The JOBS Act was designed to make it easier for small businesses and startups to access capital and grow their businesses by easing some of the regulatory burdens and costs associated with raising capital.

Reg A+ is an enhanced version of the existing Regulation A offering, which was first introduced in the 1930s. Reg A+ expands the scope of the existing Regulation A by allowing companies to raise up to $75 million in a 12-month period from both accredited and non-accredited investors, as compared to the previous limit of $50 million. It also streamlines the offering process, allows for ongoing reporting requirements, and provides preemption of state securities laws.

Reg A+ was intended to provide a more flexible and accessible fundraising option for small and medium-sized businesses, while also providing investors with greater access to investment opportunities. By allowing companies to raise larger amounts of capital from a wider pool of investors, Reg A+ is seen as a way to foster innovation, create jobs, and stimulate economic growth.
