Legislation

H.R. 1062, the Burdensome Data Collection Relief Act
Posted by on April 26, 2011

 A provision added to the Dodd-Frank Act without any debate requires publicly traded companies to disclose their median annual total compensation of all employees. Two months after the Dodd-Frank Act was signed into law, the Financial Services Committee received testimony about the enormous burden and complexity this provision poses to publicly traded companies, with very little, if any, corresponding benefit to investors. The Burdensome Data Collection Relief Act would repeal this provision of the Dodd-Frank Act. The legislation is sponsored by Representative Nan Hayworth.
