      The U.S. Senate on July 29, the last day before a five-week
      recess, confirmed the nominations of Christopher Cox, Annette Nazareth,
      and Roel Campos to serve as Members of the Securities and Exchange
      Commission. The confirmation was by unanimous consent of the Senate.
      Cox, who has been designated Chairman, will serve until 2009, and
      Nazareth will serve until 2007; Campos's reappointment is until 2010.
      Cox said in a press release that he hopes to be sworn in as Chairman on
      August 3 and to begin work at the SEC on Thursday, August 4.

      The Senate Banking Committee held a hearing on the three
      nominations on July 26. In a written statement, Cox said that his top
      priorities as Chairman will be vigorous enforcement of the securities
      laws; cultivating respect for the rule of law in the capital markets,
      through continuity, clarity, and consistency in the SEC's rulemaking and
      enforcement responsibilities; ensuring that the rules governing the
      capital markets keep pace with advancing technology; and working to
      ensure the continuity of critical operations in the financial sector in
      the event of another terrorist attack. The hearing documents are
      available, and the entire hearing is archived on RealVideo, at
