The article reports that Senate Banking Committee members Mike Crapo and John Sununu have challenged the legality and appropriateness of the rule of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that required most hedge fund advisers to register earlier in 2006. Crapo is hopeful that the District of Columbia Circuit of Appeals will invalidate the rule because the SEC lacks statutory authority to require provisions.
