This week the SEC’s spring regulatory agenda was published, which provided some much anticipated insight into the SEC’s plans regarding adoption of some significant rulemakings, including those on climate change and cybersecurity. Although the SEC does not always meet the timeline it sets for itself in its regulatory agenda (as evidenced by the fact that many of these actions on final rules were originally slotted to be taken by April 2023), here are the aspirational dates for some noteworthy actions planned by the SEC.
Action on Final Rules:
- Climate Change Disclosure
- Cybersecurity Risk Governance
- Rule 14a-8 Amendments
- Modernization of Beneficial Ownership Reporting
- Short Sale Disclosure Reforms
Action to Propose Rules:
Action to Propose Rule: Rule 144 Holding Period
Action to Propose Rule: Corporate Board Diversity
