CSA2012 - STOCK Act - Texas Energy - Talking Higher Ed
September 20, 2012
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Kevin O'Neill returns as host on this week's Capital Thinking, and will first be joined by Norma Krayem to discuss the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 (CSA2012) and the next steps on the politics and policy front of this issue. Norma will weigh in on whether the recent blockage of CSA2012 means the end of government-imposed cybersecurity measures and more. Next, Ted Sonde and Jim Christian will explore the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act or STOCK Act, which extends the Securities and Exchange Commission's insider trading rules to Congressional members, their staffs and families. Then, in his inaugural appearance on the show, Michael Cuda will discuss the Texas energy industry and the potential international business opportunities it has to offer. Finally, Alison Griffin returns to the program to talk about student loans, the relationship between education and the workplace, and her take on the presidential candidates' positions on higher education issues.
