SEC urged to move forward with nominations

The Securities and Exchange Commission is being urged to move forward two fill the two empty Commission seats. "The likelihood of the two SEC nominees being confirmed anytime soon is slim, and getting harder to imagine by the day. But the commission has too much important work to tackle to let that hold them back," an InvestmentNews editorial reads. "Even before the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Feb. 13, no date had been set to consider the White House appointments of Republican Hester Peirce and Democrat Lisa Fairfax to fill the open positions on the Securities and Exchange Commission." Read the editorial from InvestmentNews.
