I am disappointed that you are reconsidering this rule. I believe the rule should be kept and ENFORCED. Trump, in his campaign, denounced outrageous CEO pay, so it would be quite hypocritical if this Administration undermined CEO pay transparency. I believe that companies should have to disclose the ratios between CEO pay and typical worker pay. As a small business owner and as a limited market investor, I believe this information should be available. Publicly answering to positions taken, should be required for businesses that are publicly traded. It is concerning to me that the disparities between those who have money and those who do not, is so consistently moving in a direction that will be harmful for our country and our citizens, in the long run. This rule at least allows access to that data, which is needed before any discussion/possible change can begin.
