On February 9, 2011, the SEC voted unanimously to propose an amendment to its rules that would remove credit ratings as a condition for registration of securities using short-form registration or shelf registration.  Instead of a credit rating qualification, the issuer must have issued $1 billion of non-convertible securities in the past three years.  This proposed change is part of the Dodd-Frank Act reforms, which among other things require that federal agencies remove references to credit ratings from their rules. Relevant to the Series 79, the Series 24 and the Series 62.
