House Passes Swap-Dealer Exemption Bill

The House yesterday passed by a 312-111 vote Rep. Vicky Hartzler’s (R-Mo.) bill (H.R. 3336) that would revise the Dodd-Frank Act to clarify that the exemption from the swap-dealer definition includes banks that provide interest-rate swaps for customers’ loans. “This revision of Dodd-Frank is essential to farmers, manufacturers, and small and rural businesses wanting to expand and create new jobs,” Hartzler said. The Senate still must pass the legislation.
