Notice is hereby given, pursuant to the provisions of the Government in the Sunshine Act, Pub. L. 94-409, that the Securities and Exchange Commission will hold the following meetings during the week of December 9, 2002:
A Closed Meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 10, 2002, at 10 a.m., and an Open Meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2002, at 10 a.m., in Room 1C30, the William O. Douglas Room.
Commissioners, Counsel to the Commissioners, the Secretary to the Commission, and recording secretaries will attend the Closed Meeting. Certain staff members who have an interest in the matters may also be present.
The General Counsel of the Commission, or his designee, has certified that, in his opinion, one or more of the exemptions set forth in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(5), (7), (9)(B) and (10) and 17 CFR 200.402(a)(5), (7), (9)(ii) and (10), permit consideration of the scheduled matters at the Closed Meeting.
The subject matter of the Closed Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 10, 2002 will be:
Formal orders of investigation;
Institution and settlement of administrative proceedings of an enforcement nature; and
Institution and settlement of injunctive actions.
The subject matter of the Open Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, December 11, 2002 will be:
1. The Commission will consider whether to adopt the repeal of Rule 11Ac1-7 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Rule 11Ac1-7 requires a broker-dealer to disclose to its customer when the customer's order for listed options is executed at a price inferior to a better published quote, and to disclose the better published quote available at that time, unless the broker-dealer effects the transaction on an exchange that participates in an approved linkage plan.
2. The Commission will consider whether to propose amendments to Forms N-1A, N-2, N-3, proposed Form N-CSR, and Articles 6 and 12 of Regulation S-X as well as new rule 30b1-4 and new Form N-Q under the Investment Company Act. The proposals would (1) require a registered management investment company to file a schedule of its complete portfolio holdings with the Commission on a quarterly basis; (2) permit a registered management investment company to include a summary portfolio schedule in reports to shareholders and exempt money market funds from including a portfolio schedule in reports to shareholders, provided that the complete portfolio schedule is filed with the Commission and available to shareholders upon request; (3) require a registered management investment company to include a tabular or graphic presentation of a fund's portfolio holdings in its reports to shareholders; (4) require a mutual fund to disclose in its reports to shareholders fund expenses borne by shareholders during the reporting period; and (5) require a mutual fund to include Management's Discussion of Fund Performance in its annual report to shareholders.
3. The Commission will consider whether to adopt amendments to rule 203A-2(f) under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 to exempt certain investment advisers that provide advisory services through the Internet from the prohibition on Commission registration.
At times, changes in Commission priorities require alterations in the scheduling of meeting items. For further information and to ascertain what, if any, matters have been added, deleted or postponed, please contact:
