CCH Issues New Briefing: Financial Regulation Reform: What to Expect in the 111th Congress
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., November 20, 2008) – With the election results in, it is possible to identify the principal actors who will drive the reform of financial regulation in the next Congress and the proposals that will dramatically reshape the financial regulatory landscape. CCH Principal Securities Law Analyst Jim Hamilton, JD has authored a new Briefing on these regulatory events: Financial Regulation Reform: What to Expect in the 111th Congress. CCH is part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a leading provider of research information and software solutions in key specialty areas for legal and business professionals (business.cch.com).
Hamilton lists a number of reforms likely to happen next year, including reform of the securitization process, regulation of credit rating agencies, creation of a market stability or risk management regulator, regulation of hedge funds, mandated shareholder advisory votes on executive compensation, reform of fair value accounting, consolidation of federal financial regulatory agencies and a half-dozen other measures.
Hamilton also identifies the concerns and proposals of participants who will shape these reforms, including President-elect Barack Obama; Paul Volcker, a key Obama advisor; Senator Christopher Dodd, Chair of the Senate Banking Committee; Fed Chair Ben Bernanke; Representative Barney Frank, Chair of the House Financial Services Committee; and Senator Charles Grassley, Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee.
Hamilton is a prolific blogger on current issues in the securities field. Jim Hamilton’s World of Securities Regulation can be found at http://jimhamiltonblog.blogspot.com/.
Hamilton has written and spoken extensively on federal securities law and has been cited as an authority by a federal court. His analysis of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Sarbanes-Oxley Manual: A Handbook for the Act and SEC Rules, is considered a definitive explanation of the Act. In addition to his many books and articles, Hamilton serves as a leading contributor to the industry-standard publication, the CCH Federal Securities Law Reporter.
