Written on May 6, 2022

The SEC’s Small Business Capital Formation Advisory Committee has released the agenda for its virtual meeting on May 6, which will examine the Commission’s proposed rules on climate-related disclosures and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs). 

The Committee, which provides advice and recommendations to the Commission on rules, regulations and policy matters relating to small businesses, will focus on exploring the potential impacts of the proposed climate-related disclosure and SPAC rules on smaller public companies and companies seeking to go public. Members will engage in discussion with SEC staff and practitioners about factors the Commission should consider when finalizing the proposed rules and deliberate on potential recommendations. High-level summary videos of both rule proposals are available from the SEC’s Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation video gallery
