FSOC to Hold Meeting Today on MMMF Industry Reform

The Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) today will hold an open meeting to discuss proposed recommendations to reform the money market mutual fund industry and other topics.

The FSOC is considering the recommendations after SEC Chairman Mary Schapiro in August cancelled a vote on issuing a reform proposal because a majority of commissioners opposed the measure.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who chairs the FSOC, urged the council in a Sept. 27 letter to take up MMF reform. The FSOC should issue for comment MMF reform options and, after considering the comments, make a recommendation to the SEC, Geithner said.

The SEC would be required under the Dodd-Frank Act to adopt the recommendation or explain to the FSOC why it had failed to act, he explained.
