On March 15, 2010, Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-Connecticut) introduced a draft of the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010 (the 2010 Dodd Bill). The corporate governance and compensation provisions of the 2010 Dodd Bill are similar to those contained in the draft financial reform legislation released by Sen. Dodd on November 10, 2009 (the 2009 Dodd Bill), with the exception of several key differences that are noted below.
Although a large portion of the 2010 Dodd Bill is intended to address perceived inadequacies in the regulatory regime governing the financial sector, it also contains corporate governance and compensation-related provisions that, if enacted, would have a significant impact on a wide range of public companies outside of the financial sector. Many of these provisions including majority voting in director elections, say on pay, and shareholder access to the ballot long have been demanded by shareholder activists and certain institutional investors.
