CRS – Banking Policy Issues in the 115th Congress

Banking Policy Issues in the 115th Congress, David W. Perkins, Analyst in Macroeconomic Policy. March 7, 2018. “The financial crisis and the ensuing legislative and regulatory responses greatly affected the banking industry. Many new regulations—mandated or authorized by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (P.L. 111-203) or promulgated under the authority of bank regulators—have been implemented in recent years. In addition, economic and technological trends continue to affect banks. As a result, Congress is faced with many issues related to the bank industry, including issues concerning prudential regulation, consumer protection, “too big to fail” (TBTF) banks, community banks, regulatory agency design and independence, and market and economic trends.For example, the Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10) and the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155) propose wide ranging changes to the financial regulatory system, and include provisions related to many of these banking issues.”
