美政府停摆结束,SEC即将恢复工作

此前,民主党与白宫方面就边界墙资金问题产生争执,导致美国政府陷入停摆。

而近日,美国总统特朗普签署命令,美国政府将从本周一起重新恢复工作三周,直至2月15题。

尽管双方还未就边境安全问题达成一致,但是一些温和派民主党人和共和党人仍在积极寻求解决方案。

这次美国政府停摆累计时长达到34天21小时18分,创下了美国政府“关门”的最长记录。

有媒体报道称,政府停摆带来的经济损失远大于特朗普总统建立边境墙的成本。

虽然本次美国政府停摆仅仅影响了美国联邦政府整体工作的25%,但具体到行业而言却不容小视。

美国证券交易委员会(简称SEC)就是其中受影响比较大的部门。停摆期间,SEC全体4400多名工作人员,只有几百人仍然处于工作状态,不少寻求上市和融资的企业也因此陷入停滞。虽然目前SEC即将全面恢复工作,但是要一下子处理这一个多月内积压的各类申请、执法要求和公众请求并非易事,而如果白宫与国会不能在2月14之后达成一致,恐怕这种局面还将持续下去。

 

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is back on the job as President Trump signed a bill that will re-open the government for three weeks – until February 15th. The closure of federal offices was due to a political spat between the Democrats and the White House over funding of a border wall. While there is still no agreement on “border security” there is some latent hope that moderate Democrats will join with Republicans to find a resolution for the two entrenched sides. In a twist of irony, some reports have claimed the shutdown cost far more to the economy than the cost of President Trump’s wall. But then you get the government that you elect.

While the government shutdown impacted just 25% of federal operations, the government is quite large and many private sector businesses depend upon it. The SEC was one of the federal agencies that shuttered its doors dropping from a normal staff level of more than 4400 to just a few hundred. This impacted certain companies seeking to raise capital or go public, including Reg A+ crowdfunding issuers.

Yesterday, the SEC posted an update on their site regarding recommencement of operations and SEC Chair Jay Clayton published a public statement addressing the return to normal operations.

While the doors may have re-opened one can only wonder how long it will take SEC staffers to regain their sea-legs from the backlog of filings, enforcement actions, and public requests. While staffing may be at a normal level expect a period of slower responses and delays. This will be aggravated even further if the White House and Congress cannot compromise for the health of the economy and for the benefit of the nation by Valentines Day.
