Handicapping the final SEC climate rule: when & what will it look like…

In this PublicChatter.com blog, I provide the odds about what the SEC’s final climate disclosure rule will ultimately look like – and when that will be adopted, including addressing:

1. What are the odds of a climate disclosure rule being adopted by the SEC this year – sometime by the end of 2022?

2. What are the odds of a final climate disclosure rule looking significantly different by the time its adopted by the SEC?

3. What are the odds of outside forces stalling a final rule, like a court injunction or other maneuvers?

4. What are the odds of the deadline for comments on the SEC’s climate disclosure rule being extended?

The last question might be viewed as a trick question since the SEC extended the comment period deadline yesterday – but I do analyze whether that will ultimately impact the timing of a final rule.
