        industry directly and indirectly benefitting from the fee 
        reductions, including purchasers and sellers of securities,

        Commission's operations, including staff quality, recruitment, 
        and retention.
            (2) Congressional oversight.--The implications for 
        congressional oversight of the Commission, including whether

            (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.

        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
