The SEC’s twisty argument to toss pay-to-play muni bond rule challenge

July 28, 2016

(Reuters) - Last December, Congress wanted to make sure that the Securities and Exchange Commission would keep its nose out of campaign finance reform. As you know, there's been considerable debate in recent years about whether the SEC should require corporations to disclose their political spending. The agency hasn't shown much eagerness to do so, but in the Appropriations Act of 2016 (which was actually passed in December 2015), the House and Senate seemed to take the issue out of the SEC's control. The law barred the commission from using SEC funds to "finalize, issue or implement any rule, regulation or order regarding the disclosure of political contributions."
