Council of Institutional Investors
In this teleconference, CII General Counsel Jeff Mahoney provided an update on CII activities relating to recent developments on Capitol Hill, the Administration, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on financial regulation issues of interest to institutional investors.
This call also featured guest speaker Michael J. Canning, Jr., Director of Policy & Governmental Affairs, North America Securities Administrators Association (NASAA). Canning discussed the views of NASAA on current bills under consideration by the U.S. House of Representatives. Those bills include H.R. 5037 which contains provisions that would appear to preclude investors from bringing securities fraud claims in state courts. For recent NASAA Congressional testimony and CII’s letter on H.R. 5037 see here and here.
