U.S. House committee urges SEC to dig into Kodak transactions
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House Financial Services Committee on Wednesday asked federal regulators to investigate securities transactions made by Eastman Kodak (KODK.N) and its executives around the time it learned it could receive a $765 million government loan.
