Media Advisory: Financial CHOICE Act Action Scheduled


 

Washington, September 8, 2016 -

WASHINGTON – Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) announced today that the Committee will begin meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 13 to debate the Financial CHOICE Act, consider possible amendments and vote on the legislation.

The Financial CHOICE Act -- the Republican alternative to the failed Dodd-Frank Act -- will end taxpayer-funded bailouts of large financial institutions; relieve banks that elect to be strongly capitalized from growth-strangling regulation that slows the economy and harms consumers; impose tougher penalties on those who commit financial fraud; and demand greater accountability from Washington regulators.

More information about the Financial CHOICE Act is available at financialservices.house.gov/choice.
