Corporate Political Spending Disclosure Rule Should Be a Key Factor in Senate Confirmation of SEC Nominees

The call comes as the U.S. Senate Banking Committee takes up the long-delayed confirmation hearing for two people nominated to be SEC commissioners, Hester Pierce, a Republican, and Lisa Fairfax, a Democrat.
