  The SEC proposed three measures that provide more shareholder scrutiny of executive pay. One rule would require public companies receiving money from the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to provide a shareholder vote on executive pay in their proxy solicitations.

Comments are due within 60 days of its publication in the Federal Register.
