Next Wednesday, April 27, the SEC will consider whether to propose amendments to the Securities Exchange Act, pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, requiring public companies to disclose in a clear manner the relationship between executive compensation actually paid and the financial performance of the company. Any rules proposed will be subject to a comment period, following which further action will be required by the SEC to finalize the rules.

Here’s the SEC’s press release about today’s rule proposals.
