SEC to pare back reporting modernization rule

The Securities and Exchange Commission had planned to propose rolling back the reporting modernization rule, set to go into effect in 2019, on Wednesday. But it postponed the action because commissioners disagree over the scope of the rollback, people familiar with the matter said. The SEC said in a notice posted Thursday that it anticipates holding a vote in the future. Read the original story from The Wall Street Journal.
