Securities Acts Amendments of 1975

The Securities Acts Amendments of 1975 is an act of Congress. It was passed as a United States Public Law (Pub.L. 94–29) on June 4, 1975, and amended the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. § 77a et seq.) and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. § 78a et seq.). The Securities Acts Amendments imposed an obligation on the Securities Exchange Commission to consider the impacts that any new regulation would have on competition.[1] The law also empowered the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) to establish a national market system and a system for nationwide clearing and settlement of securities transactions, enabling the SEC to enact Regulation NMS, and created the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB), a self-regulatory organization that writes investor protection rules and other rules regulating broker-dealers and banks in the United States municipal securities market.
