This article reports that early this year, the Federal Accounting Standards Board declared its number-one priority for 1985 to be the completion of its pension project. Predictions about the outcome of the Board's due process often prove unreliable, but it looks like the 11 year-old pension project has nearly run its course. And because the latest proposals reaffirm many of the conclusions previously reached in the Board's Preliminary Views, whatever emerges is likely to be quite different from current practice. Although the proposed changes are extensive, the Board hopes its plans for a relatively long transition period would enable companies to adopt the new rules with a minimum of disruption.
