Panel of Executives and Academics to Consider Regulation and Competitiveness

A committee filled with business leaders and academics was created yesterday to consider changes in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and other laws and regulations governing securities markets and companies, with the intention of improving competitiveness for American markets.

The group, called the Committee on Capital Markets Regulation, has no official status but the announcement of its creation included praise from Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr., who said that the issue of American competitiveness “is important to the future of the American economy and a priority for me.”
