Section 31 Update
Traders Magazine, July 2001
It's now up to the new Senate Majority leader. The work of several years of lobbying by the Security Traders Association now hinges on the view of Tom Daschle, leader of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate. He now is the key man on the fate of Section 31(a) reform, which would reduce stock transaction fees as well as provide pay parity for the staff of the SEC. The measure already easily passed in the U.S. House of Representatives and a slightly different version previously passed in the Senate. The delay in the legislation has been caused by the differences between the House and the Senate bills.
