Eugene Goldman was quoted in the November/December 2003 issue of Corporate Board Member magazine in the article, "The SEC vs. Eliot Spitzer: Whose Turf Is This?" Mr. Goldman commented that it is possible that a compromise could be reached regarding proposed legislation that as part of a broader securities act would reduce the states’ ability to supersede the SEC's brokerage regulations with their own, so there are not 50 different sets of rules. "I think there needs to be a mechanism that would require the state to consult with the SEC before it attempts to impose these kinds of business conditions. If the SEC has no problem, fine. If it does, the state would have to defer to the SEC."
