One of the two Democratic members of the Securities and Exchange Commission plans to step down next month, leaving Republicans with stronger control of the agency at a time when conservatives are pushing to ease financial regulation broadly.
SEC commissioner Robert Jackson Jr., 42 years old, said Thursday he plans to leave office on Feb. 14 to teach at New York University School of Law. Until his replacement is confirmed by the Senate, the departure will leave the agency with two Republican commissioners, one Democrat and an independent—Chairman Jay Clayton, who was picked by President Trump.
