In response to public outcry over the bankruptcies and huge accounting irregularities at corporate giants like Enron and WorldCom, President George W. Bush signed the "Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002," amending the U.S. securities and other laws in important ways. In What Is Sarbanes-Oxley?, attorney Guy P.
