The SEC has a lot of rules to implement for Dodd-Frank, and as we know, much of that has been slow-going. The agency had been posting a timetable for action on its website, but "this summer, the agency quietly removed timing estimates from its list of pending Dodd-Frank mandates, largely because the estimates were rarely accurate, officials said," reports a Wall Street Journal blog.

"Based on feedback we determined it would be more informative to announce actual schedules as the Commission determines them, rather than sort items into broad six month windows," said SEC Spokesman John Nester.
