The FASB received several requests to provide relief as smaller companies are dealing with the highly challenging implementation of the revenue recognition standard. The FASB has also requested that its staff prepare a second exposure draft to propose new effective dates for long-duration insurance contracts. Upon approval by the FASB, the exposure drafts are expected to be issued with 30-day comment periods.
