  • The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) has approved rules under the Securities Exchange Act (the “Exchange Act”) implementing the already-effective disclosure requirements relating to mine safety and health set forth in Section 1503 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the “Dodd-Frank Act”). The final rules adhere more closely to Section 1503 than the original proposals. Largely in response to comments, the SEC decided not to expand the disclosures required by the final rules beyond those required by Section 1503.
