Introduced in House (06/21/2016)

This bill amends the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to declare that fines collected for violations of the rules of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board shall be deposited and credited as general revenue of the Treasury.

Currently such fines must be be equally divided between the board and the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The bill repeals the requirement that any such fines collected by a registered securities association be accounted for by the association separately from certain other fines collected and be allocated two-thirds to the association and one-third to the board.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is amended to repeal the requirement for the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board to use funds generated from the collection of monetary penalties for a merit scholarship program for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in accredited accounting degree programs.
