LD’s edit: Thank you to a Sense on Cents reader, Transparency, for informing us that Senate Judiciary Committee Approves Bill To Repeal SEC FOIA Exemptions.
Thanks to a loyal reader of Sense on Cents for sharing this press release put forth earlier this week. Not that the Republican Party does not have a LOT to answer for in terms of the final Financial Regulatory Reform, but at least on this front, I commend Darrell Issa (R-CA) for introducing this legislation.
Issa Introduces the SEC Freedom of Information Restoration Act
President Obama at Signing of Financial Reform Bill: “It demands accountability and responsibility from everyone…It demands accountability and responsibility from everyone…And we all win when folks are rewarded based on how well they perform, not how well they evade accountability.” (more…)

Earlier this week, the SEC informed Fox Business News that it would not comply with a request for information based upon SEC Financial Regulatory Law H.R. 4173. Fortunately, some people in our country still care about transparency, accountability, and integrity. To this end, thank you to a friend of Sense on Cents for sharing this recent release:
It brings the SEC back under the Freedom of Information (FOIA) Act after the Dodd-Frank financial reg bill provided them with an exemption.
