The SEC Opens Its Required Dodd-Frank Act Rulemaking Initiatives to Public Comment

Last Wednesday the Securities and Exchange Commission announced that it would be trying out a new process for gathering public feedback on its Dodd-Frank Act rulemaking initiatives.  The Commission set up a series of email addresses where interested parties can submit preliminary comments, even before proposed rules and amendments are released and the official comment period begins.  Any preliminary comments submitted will be available publicly on the Commission’s website.  The topics covered include matters which must be implemented in short order and major regulatory matters, such as changes to the accredited investor standard, disqualification requirements under Regulation D offerings and matters related to executive compensation.
