Synopsis of Order

In this Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, comment is sought on recommendations of the Joint Conference. The Commission convened the Joint Conference on August 27, 2002, as a Federal-State partnership to reexamine regulatory accounting requirements, and recommend additions and modifications thereto. On October 9, 2003, the Joint Conference submitted the result of a year-long study of the Commission's accounting rules and on-going proceedings related to the Commission's accounting requirements. Here, comment is sought on those recommendations. Comment also is sought on further delaying the implementation of four accounting and reporting rule changes, to allow time for receipt and consideration of comments responding to the Joint Conference's recommendations with regard to the four rule changes.
