Bloomberg BNA: White House Eyes Doubling SEC Budget by 2021

"The Securities and Exchange Commission's budget would increase to $1.78 billion for fiscal year 2017 under the White House's Feb. 9 budget request, in a step toward the administration's stated goal of doubling the agency's funding by 2021."
