ABSTRACT
The author reflects on recommendations meant to strengthen audit committees. He states that while Financial Executives International (FEI) wants to revise elements of a proposal to strengthen the committees, FEI is strongly in support of the initiative. He comments on the need for audit committees to contain a minimum of one financial expert, and mentions that language requiring financial statements conform with generally accepted accounting principles should be removed.
