Letter to House Subcommittee Encouraging Robust Oversight of the Accounting Industry and Their Regulators

On November 21, 2019, Better Markets, in conjunction with AFL-CIO, Consumer Federation of America, Center for American Progress, and Americans for Financial Reform, wrote a letter to SEC Chairman Jay Clayton expressing grave concerns regarding PCAOB staff guidance on Rule 3526(b), Communications with Audit Committees Concerning Independence.

In light of the recently announced House Subcommittee on Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets hearing entitled, “An Examination of the Financial Accounting Standards Board and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board,” we, along with the Consumer Federation of America and Americans for Financial Reform, sent a letter to the Chairman (The Honorable Brad Sherman) and Ranking Member (The Honorable Bill Huizenga) on January 13, 2020 commending the hearing announcement and their oversight efforts, plus alerting them of our Nov. 2019 letter to Chairman Clayton.
