SEC Rulemaking Deluge: New Resource to Keep You on Track

This morning, the Commission will consider a climate disclosure proposal that could significantly change controls & reporting practices. The flurry of recent proposals – including on Rule 10b5-1 plans, buybacks and cyber disclosure – suggests that the floodgates are opening for Chair Gary Gensler’s regulatory agenda. And it comes on the heels of a very active conclusion to the term of prior SEC Chair Jay Clayton. The Commission has now bestowed us with 20+ rule changes and proposals over the past two years! Are you keeping up?

Maybe it’s middle-age or lack of sleep (thanks, kids), but I for one am having a hard time remembering what has recently changed – and what might be changing in the near future. In response to member requests, we’ve created this “cheat sheet” to track selected rulemaking and show where on our site you can find practical guidance on each topic. You can find the cheat sheet via the blue nav bar at the top of the home page.

We are always open to suggestions on new ways to help our members look good. Email us any time to share what would make your work life easier.
