SEC Actions and Proposals to Prioritize Needs of Long-Term Investors

Recently the SEC issued interpretive guidance for companies concerning their disclosure related to climate change.  A copy of their guidance can be found at: http://www.sec.gov/rules/interp/2010/33-9106.pdf

Soon thereafter, Commissioner Luis A. Aguilar gave a speech putting that action into a larger context, that of the need for the SEC to prioritize the needs of long-term investors.  A copy of the speech can be found at: http://www.sec.gov/news/speech/2010/spch020510laa.htm
