Corporate Governance Activist Group Proposed

At the Council of Institutional Investors fall meeting last week, New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi proposed the formation of an activist group dedicated to promoting corporate governance reforms, regulation, and legislation. The group will be called the National Coalition of Corporate Reform (NCCR) and there are plans to have an organizing meeting in October. Other public institutions, along with the president of the AFL-CIO, have expressed their support for the proposed group.

Reuters ran an article on the proposal and Hevesi has issued a press release.

Quote of note: NCCR’s agenda, Hevesi announced, includes – “Lobbying efforts will target changes in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, the Class Action Fairness Act of 2003, SEC regulations, and state laws, where imbalances exist with respect to shareholder rights and corporate obligations.”
