View this link to a video of a segment from yesterday's PBS Newshour discussing the rulemaking petition submitted to the SEC to require public companies to make disclosure regarding their political spending. SEC representatives have indicated that the SEC is considering proposing the new rule. (See my article from 4/25/13.) Former SEC Commissioner Paul Atkins and one of the drafters of the petition, Prof. Robert Jackson of Columbia law school, debate the issue.
