More Self-Serving AICPA Claptrap
I got an e-mail from the AICPA's "Center for Audit Quality" on 16 June 2010, saying it opposes a permanent exemption for companies with market capitalizations under $75 million from compliance with SOX section 404. The Center opposes this to protect investors. Would an AICPA organ favor creating make-work projects for CPAs? No. The Center is the old AICPA SEC Practice Section in new garb. Consider how much the AICPA has improved audit quality since 1976. Not much. Here's a link to the letter sent Congress:
