BREAKING DOWN 'SEC Form 45B-3'

The Public Utility Holding Company Act (PUHCA) of 1935 was introduced as a result of events that occurred during the Great Depression of the 1930s. It remained in effect in substantially its original form for more than 55 years, until it was reformed by the Energy Policy Act (EPACT) of 1992. PUHCA was repealed in February 2006, following the ushering in of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
