The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) identified its initiatives and legislative agenda for the second session of the 110th Congress. The initiatives fall into five broad categories: 1. Preserving the authority of state regulators to protect investors; 2. strengthening the mechanisms currently in place that provide redress to investors for wrongdoing by industry participants; 3. maintaining federal laws designed to insure corporate accountability and shareholder confidence; 4. promoting sound and effective regulatory initiatives, and 5. improving the scope and breadth of investor education efforts.
