Proxy Update—36.1% Yes Vote on First Resolution of the Season

In January, the first toxic chemical/product safety resolution of the 2008 proxy season was voted upon at the annual meeting of medical device manufacturer Becton, Dickinson. The resolution, asking the company to report on how it is addressing likely tightening of regulations on medical devices in the European Union, received a 36.1% Yes vote from shareholders. Two proxy voting advisory services—Institutional Shareholder Services and PROXY Governance, urged support of the resolution.
