The House Financial Services Committee will mark up its wide-ranging Dodd-Frank Act replacement legislation May 2, according to a House aide.
The bill, known as the Financial Choice Act, offers regulatory relief for banks that bolster their capital levels. It also would pare back many aspects of Dodd-Frank, such as the Volcker Rule, which bars proprietary trading by banks, and the Durbin amendment, which caps fees on debit-card transactions.
House Republican lawmakers, led by Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas), want to move quickly on the bill, although it would face stiff resistance from Senate Democrats in its current form.
The May 2 vote on the legislation would follow a hearing scheduled for April 26, and a floor vote could take place within weeks.
Witnesses scheduled to testify April 26 include Hester Peirce, a Mercatus Center fellow who was nominated to a Republican seat on the Securities and Exchange Commission in late 2015 but never confirmed, and Michael Barr, a University of Michigan Law School professor who helped craft Dodd-Frank when he worked at the Treasury Department.
