The article reports on the extension of a regulation to weigh bank rules by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Securities and Exchange Commission extended to March 31, 2005 from November 12, 2004 banks' temporary exemption from a proposed rule that would require them to "push out" some of their securities-related activities into separate broker-dealer affiliates that the SEC regulates. The SEC said that the extension would give it more time to review she comments it received on the proposed rule.
