  • On January 27, 2006, the Securities and Exchange Commission proposed for comment new and wide-ranging disclosure rules regarding executive and director compensation, insider stock ownership, related party transactions, director independence and other corporate governance matters of reporting public companies. Because the comment period for the proposed rules expires on April 10, 2006, any final rules to come out of the proposal will not be effective for the many public companies that hold their annual meetings in the first half of 2006.
