CHOICE Act Approved by U.S. House of Representatives

By Nelson Griggs / Executive Vice President of Listing Services at Nasdaq

QuoteLast week, the U.S. House of Representatives approved H.R. 10, the Financial CHOICE Act of 2017. The bill contains numerous changes that are designed to facilitate capital raising and support economic growth.

Several of the bill’s provisions are reflected in Nasdaq’s blueprint for revitalizing the U.S. equities markets. These topics include bringing needed transparency and accountability to proxy advisory firms; and modernizing the shareholder proposal process by raising the minimum ownership amount and holding period, and effecting changes to the resubmission thresholds for proxy items.

Nasdaq has been a vocal supporter of the capital formation and corporate governance provisions in the Financial CHOICE Act and we are pleased with the approval of the bill by the full House of Representatives. In March, Nasdaq’s General Counsel, Edward Knight, testified in support of the Financial CHOICE Act in Nasdaq’s testimony before the Capital Markets Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee.

It is our strong opinion that the positive provisions in the Financial CHOICE Act will reduce regulatory burdens on entrepreneurs and community banks, help more companies choose to become publicly-listed, create jobs, and ultimately help the U.S. economy flourish.
