CII Raises Concerns About Proxy Adviser and SEC Reform Bills

In written testimony prepared for a May 17 House capital markets subcommittee hearing, CII said a bill that would tighten regulation of proxy advisory firms was “a solution in search of a problem.” The prepared statement by CII Executive Director Ken Bertsch also warned that the SEC Regulatory Accountability Act was unnecessary and would paralyze the nation’s top securities cop. The Florida State Board of Administration also submitted written comments for consideration by the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises.
