The House will vote on S. 2155, the bipartisan financial regulatory reform bill advanced by the Senate in March, while the Senate will take up a set of additional bills passed by the House Financial Services Committee, according to an agreement announced by House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) today. Both Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy have previously signaled that the House could pass the bill in May, but Ryan offered no further comments on the timing of a vote.
“We’ve got an agreement to be moving different pieces of legislation,” Ryan said. “So we will be moving [S. 2155]. We’re also going to be moving in the Senate a package of bills that we think will actually add to this that the Financial Services Committee has acted on as well.” The House Financial Services Committee has passed numerous standalone measures by substantial bipartisan majorities.
