Earlier today, FEI's Committee on Corporate Reporting (CCR) filed comment letters with the Financial Accounting Standards Board on FASB's recent proposals to improve guidance for fair value in inactive markets, and other-than-temporary-impairment (OTTI).
FASB is scheduled to vote at its board meeting tomorrow morning (Thursday April 2nd) on whether to issue the two proposals (Proposed FASB Staff Positions or FSPs) as final guidance, and whether to make any changes from the proposals based on comments received.
