The article points out that U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox's annual salary of $152,000 appears small when compared with the salaries of the top officials of the self-regulatory organizations and industry trade groups whose members the SEC regulates. At least six had salaries of more than $1 million in 2004 or 2005, based on the latest tax forms the groups filed with the Internal Revenue Service.
