ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the actions of the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) as of April 2008. It notes that despite having only three commissioners out of a normal panel of five, the SEC remains busy with plans related to proxies, naked short sellers and the Regulation Fair Disclosure (Reg FD). The SEC approved the plans by several firms to bar proposals for proxy access from their ballots made by shareholders with more than 3% of shares for at least two years.
