IN A BETTER WORLD, today's Senate confirmation hearings on the nomination of Rep. Christopher Cox (R-California) to lead the Securities and Exchange Commission would be the Democratic Party's finest hour. The hearings offer a perfect opportunity to decry Wall Street's looting of Main Street and to put the GOP on trial for creating the conditions under which corporate criminals flourished. Instead, Democrats have been eerily silent on Mr. Cox, a right-wing Republican who wrote a 1995 law making it harder for investors to take corporate swindlers to court.

WITH THE RESIGNATION of William H. Donaldson as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, investors are losing a much-needed advocate. Mr. Donaldson came into office just 28 months ago with deep business credentials - having led insurance giant Aetna and the New York Stock Exchange - but proved to be an aggressive and independent regulator of the nation's financial markets. Let's hope that his successor at the SEC - President Bush quickly announced he's nominating California Rep. Christopher Cox - also rises to the occasion.

WASHINGTON - Forced to confront their own mortality after the Sept. 11 attacks, lawmakers are drafting plans to quickly fill congressional vacancies if large numbers are killed or incapacitated by another terrorist strike. More than 130 House members from both parties have signed a letter to the leadership calling for creation of a commission to develop a succession plan within three months. There is no quick way to replace House members in the event of a disaster. The issue is not as urgent in the Senate, where an empty seat can be filled by an appointment of the state's governor.

WASHINGTON -- A plan to force companies to disclose salaries of high-paid employees who are not corporate officers is in jeopardy after a backlash from Hollywood, where film and TV stars often get bigger paychecks than executives. Opponents claim the measure could put media companies at a competitive disadvantage by forcing them to disclose detailed compensation packages for luminaries such as Tonight Show host Jay Leno, film director Steven Spielberg and Today anchor Katie Couric. The new rule was proposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission this year to ensure that top corporate policymakers cannot evade disclosure rules.

WASHINGTON - President Bush nominated conservative Rep. Christopher Cox as chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday, prompting speculation that the agency would take a more pro-business approach after it battled financial scandals at Enron Corp., WorldCom Inc. and other companies in recent years. Business organizations praised Bush's selection of the California Republican and said they expected that he would focus more on regulatory reform rather than on the enforcement and stiffer rules that characterized the turbulent reign of departing Chairman William H. Donaldson.

WASHINGTON -- As Clinton administration officials were testifying on Capitol Hill yesterday in defense of their satellite export decisions, lawmakers voted overwhelmingly to form a select panel with subpoena power to investigate whether those decisions jeopardized national security.Voting 409-10, members of the House of Representatives agreed to form a panel of five Republicans and four Democrats to conduct the inquiry. House Speaker Newt Gingrich has tapped Rep. Christopher Cox, a California Republican, to head the panel, indicating Gingrich may want a probe that appears nonpartisan and deliberative.
