SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION
Sunshine Act Meeting.
Notice is hereby given, pursuant to the provisions of the Government in the Sunshine Act, Pub. L. 94-409, that the Securities and Exchange Commission will hold an Open Meeting on May 25, 2011 at 9:30 a.m., in the Auditorium, Room L-002.
The subject matters of the Open Meeting will be:
Item 1: The Commission will consider whether to propose amendments to Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933 to disqualify securities offerings involving certain "felons and other 'bad actors'" from reliance on the Rule 506 safe harbor exemption from Securities Act registration. These proposals are designed to implement Section 926 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Item 2: The Commission will consider whether to adopt rules and forms to implement Section 21F of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 entitled "Securities Whistleblower Incentives and Protection." Section 21F, as added by Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, provides that the Commission shall pay awards, under regulations prescribed by the Commission and subject to certain limitations, to eligible whistleblowers who voluntarily provide the Commission with original information about a violation of the federal securities laws that leads to the successful enforcement of a covered judicial or administrative action, or a related action.
At times, changes in Commission priorities require alterations in the scheduling of meeting items.
For further information and to ascertain what, if any, matters have been added, deleted or postponed, please contact:
