House Passes Legislation Addressing 10b5-1 Plans
The House of Representatives has passed the “The Promoting Transparent Standards for Corporate Insiders Act” (H.R. 1528) by a vote of 355-69. The bill directs the Securities and Exchange Commission to study and report on possible revisions to regulations regarding 10b5-1 trading plans. 10b5-1 plans allow employees of publicly traded companies and others to sell their shares without violating insider trading prohibitions. The bill requires the SEC to revise its regulations consistent with the results of the study.
