The SEC proposed yesterday to readopt the beneficial ownership rules currently in effect to preserve the status quo with respect to security-based swaps after Section 766 of the Dodd-Frank Act becomes effective on July 16, 2011. The SEC proposed the readoption of the rules to dispel any notion that a failure by the SEC to enact rulemaking before July 16 would render the beneficial ownership rules inapplicable to investors that buy or sell such security-based swaps. Comments are due by April 15, 2011.
