Toward A Friendlier Sec


In Business This Week

TOWARD A FRIENDLIER SEC

THE GOP CONGRESS HAS FIRED another salvo in its drive to streamline securities laws. Jack Fields (R-Tex.), chairman of the House Commerce subcommittee on telecom and finance, planned on July 27 to introduce a bill to reduce corporate regulatory burdens.

It also would privatize the Securities & Exchange Commission's computerized filing system and force it to consider compliance costs of future regulations.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
