Allison Lee Will Be a Welcome Investor Advocate at Trump’s SEC

Statement of Bartlett Naylor, Financial Policy Advocate, Public Citizen’s Congress Watch Division

Note: Today, the U.S. Senate confirmed Allison Lee to serve as commissioner of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in one of the two seats reserved for Democrats.

We welcome Lee’s confirmation to the SEC. A knowledgeable leader, Lee will undoubtedly be a fierce advocate for American investors and a voice for strong enforcement. We hope she will push for the disclosure of important items such as corporate political spending, which will be most welcome at this Trumped up commission.
