An excerpt from "SEC Publishes List of Rules to Be Reviewed Over Next 12 Months"

On November 28, the Securities and Exchange Commission published a list of rules to be reviewed pursuant to the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA). The RFA requires federal agencies to review rules that have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities within 10 years of the publication of such rules as final rules. The purpose of the review is to determine whether the rules should be continued without change or amended or rescinded in light of the continued need for the rule, the nature of comments received concerning the rule, the complexity of the rule and the extent to which the rule overlaps, duplicates or conflicts with other federal or state rules. Among the rules listed for review by the Staff of the SEC during the next 12 months is Rule 155 adopted under the Securities Act of 1933.
