    (a) Study.--The Office of Economic Analysis of the Securities and

    (b) Factors for Consideration.--In conducting the study under 
subsection (a), the Office shall--
            (1) consider the various elements of the securities 
        industry directly and indirectly benefitting from the fee 
        reductions, including purchasers and sellers of securities, 
        members of national securities exchanges, issuers, broker-
        dealers, underwriters, participants in investment companies, 
        retirement programs, and others;

shall include analysis of the following issues:
            (1) SEC operations.--The impact of such conversion on the 
        Commission's operations, including staff quality, recruitment, 
        and retention.
            (2) Congressional oversight.--The implications for 
        congressional oversight of the Commission, including whether 
        imposing annual expenditure limitations would be beneficial to 
        such oversight.
            (3) Fees.--The likely consequences of the conversion on the 
        rates, collection procedures, and predictability of fees 
        collected by the Commission.
            (4) Appropriations.--The methods by which the conversion 
        may be accomplished without reducing the availability of 
        offsetting collections for appropriations.
            (5) Other matters.--Such other impacts, implications, and 
        consequences as the Comptroller General may consider relevant 
        to congressional consideration of the question of such

required by subsection (a) no later than 180 after the date of

            (1) an agency is authorized to deposit the receipts of its 
        collections in the Treasury of the United States, or in a 
        depository institution, but such deposits are not treated as 
        Government funds or appropriated monies, and are available for 
        the salaries and other expenses of the Commission and its 
        employees without annual appropriation or apportionment; and
            (2) the agency is authorized to employ and fix the salaries 
        and other compensation of its officers and employees, and such 
        salaries and other compensation are paid without regard to the 
        provisions of other laws applicable to officers and employees 
        of the United States.

        to the Commission for such fiscal year is   enacted.
