SEC Extends Public Comment Period for Climate Change

Private sector gets extra input into climate oversight rules.

 The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has extended its period for public comment on three current climate information policy proposals until June 17. The proposed policies would require U.S.-listed companies to disclose specific metrics to the public that show what impact their organizations are having on climate deterioration. Certain politicians and business groups are calling this an overstep in authority, and advocated strongly for a comment extension. SEC Chairman Gary Gensler quickly extended it.  

“The SEC benefits greatly from hearing from the public on proposed regulatory changes,” Chairman Gensler said in a statement. “Commenters with diverse views have noted that they would benefit from additional time to review these three proposals, and I’m pleased that the public will have additional time to provide thoughtful feedback.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chairman Gensler as he extends the comment period regarding climate policy proposals.
  • For members of the SEC as they seek to end misleading sales practices and stock manipulations.
  • For the Lord’s will to be accomplished through the regulation efforts of the SEC.
