The Financial CHOICE Act is a bill that aims at rolling back many provisions of the Dodd-Frank legislation enacted in response to the financial crisis of 2007-08. The bill was passed by the House of Representatives on a strictly partisan vote last June and is now in the Senate. The CHOICE act includes major changes on how we handle a failed financial entity (orderly liquidation authority), how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are regulated and how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau operates. Will these changes, if enacted, make the financial system stronger and create jobs or will they bring us to the brink of another major crisis and reverse gains made by vulnerable consumers? This will be the focus of the discussion of the expert panel.
