NASAA Letter to SEC on Proposed Amendments to Regulation SHO

Joseph P. Borg

NASAA, 4 October 2006

NASAA offers its support of the proposed amendments to Regulation SHO.

NASAA strongly urges the Commission to take all necessary steps to eliminate abusive short selling, and the corrosive practices that surround it, consistent with the Commission’s mission to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.
