SEC To Vote On Regulation FD

Vote Set for Thursday, August 10, 2000

By John M. Baker, Esq.

The SEC has scheduled a vote on its controversial proposed “full disclosure” regulation, Regulation FD, for Thursday, August 10, even as aggressive lobbying continues from both sides and two of the four sitting Commissioners have said that they do not know how they will vote.

From the SEC News Digest:


The subject matter of the open meeting scheduled for Thursday, August 10, will be: The Commission will consider adopting new rules to address three issues:

(1) the selective disclosure by issuers of material nonpublic information (Regulation FD);

(2) whether insider trading liability requires “use” or “knowing possession” of material nonpublic information (Rule 10b5-1); and

(3) when a family or other non-business relationship gives rise to liability under the misappropriation theory of insider trading (Rule 10b5-2).
