The results of the ’06 midterm elections are in, and when the 110th Congress convenes in January, there will be quite a number of new faces bringing with them a number of new priorities–that includes several activist Democrats leading committees pivotal to business interests. Should executives be concerned? Let’s just say Bette Davis’ immortal lines in All About Eve come to mind: You know the ones: “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride!” In the House, one of the most prominent appointments is probably that of Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank as chair of the House Financial Services Committee. Rep. Frank has made no secret about his feeling that some kind of cap needs to be put on executive compensation. He also does not seem to be giving Sarbanes-Oxley legislative reform a very high priority. Instead, Frank wants to see if the Securities and Exchange Commission and Public Company Accounting Oversight Board can fix the problems with the statute through the regulatory process.
