HFS Committee Requests Legislative Overhaul Comments

According to an article from The Hill today the House Financial Services Chairman Spencer Bachus (R-Ala.) has requested suggestions from House Republicans as they prepare to rework pieces of the Dodd-Frank Act.

The committee announced it will solicit public input on how lawmakers should rewrite the Volcker Rule, warning the existing requirement could have a "devastating" impact on the economy. Bachus said lawmakers are exploring "legislative alternatives."
If regulators implement the Volcker Rule in its current form, the repercussions will be devastating to our economy. It will undermine our nation’s ability to compete and make it harder for Main Street businesses to raise capital so they can grow and create jobs.
The committee will be accepting comments until September 7—when a hearing will be scheduled on legislative overhaul.

The committee has established an email address to gather suggestions and alternatives to the Volcker Rule—volckeralternative@mail.house.gov.
