SEC’s Jackson Says He’ll Stay for Now as Successor Talk Heats Up

SEC Commissioner Robert Jackson isn’t ready to leave the agency just yet, even though work to find his successor is well underway.

The Democratic-leaning independent won’t teach this fall at the New York University School of Law, where he is on leave, he told Bloomberg Law Aug. 26. The Securities and Exchange Commission member declined to comment on his plans beyond this year, however.

Jacskon’s term expired in June, but he has the option to stay about 18 more months, unless President Donald Trump nominates and the Senate confirms a successor. He joined the commission in January 2018.
