|Re :||Acceleration of Periodic Reporting Filing Dates and Disclosure Concerning Website Access to Reports, Release Nos. 33-8989; 34-35741|
|May 20, 2002|
Division of Corporation Finance staff received a call from SNL Financial LC. Regarding the website access proposal, the caller raised a question about the "same day" filing standard. If a company electronically submits its filing to the Commission after EDGAR filing hours such that it receives a file date of the next business day, must the company post the filing to its website that night or the next day?
