Trump’s SEC Makes Slow Progress on Trimming Rules – WSJ

The SEC has signaled more gradual action aimed at streamlining regulations for the coming year.

“Modernizing the rules without in any way taking away investor protection is the best thing that we can do,” Mr. Clayton told CFO Journal on the sidelines of the Practicing Law Institute’s “SEC Speaks” conference in Washington on Friday. The agency is looking at all rules to see what could be pruned back, the SEC chairman said.

In making changes, the SEC is limited by its mission to enforce securities law and protect investors, current and former SEC commissioners say.
