ABA-Supported Legislation in Markup Today

The House Financial Services Committee today will mark up nine bills relating to derivatives and the JOBS Act. ABA wrote to committee members yesterday to outline ABA’s positions on the legislation. Among the bills ABA supports are:
  • H.R. 634, which clarifies that end users do not have to meet margin requirements for uncleared swaps.
  • H.R. 801, which corrects a technical error in the JOBS Act to extend SEC shareholder registration and deregistration thresholds to savings and loan holding companies.
  • H.R. 992, which clarifies that banks can continue to engage in swaps -- without having to move structured finance products to a separately capitalized affiliate that may be less-regulated.
  • H.R. 1062, which requires a full cost-benefit analysis for all SEC regulations.
Other bills to be marked up address inter-affiliate swaps, cross-border transactions and Basel III.

Read the letter.
