House set to vote on the Financial CHOICE Act, H.R. 10, to repeal Dodd-Frank Act requirements

The House of Representatives is set to vote this week on The Financial CHOICE Act, H.R. 10, an extensive bill intended to rewrite the Dodd-Frank Act and roll back hundreds of other financial regulations. The Financial CHOICE Act in the 115th Congress: Selected Policy Issues (May 10, 2017, R44839) highlights major proposals included in the bill but is not a comprehensive summary. In general, H.R. 10 proposes changes that can be divided into two categories: (1) changes to financial policies and regulations and (2) changes to the regulatory structure and rulemaking process. See also, The Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10) and the Dodd-Frank Act (May 22, 2017, IN10695) and Systemically Important or “Too Big to Fail” Financial Institutions (Jan. 4, 2017, R42150).

The future of H.R. 10 in the Senate is uncertain. According to published reports, Senate Democrats are likely to mount a filibuster against it while Senate Republicans are expected to offer their own financial regulatory reform package. — Joe
