AbA launches new Online Dodd-Frank Act tracker
The American Bankers Association in
December introduced a new online
resource designed to help its members
and the public track the progress of implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall
Street Reform and Consumer Protection
Act (Dodd-Frank Act).
The Dodd-Frank Tracker takes both
a big-picture and a piece-by-piece approach to the Dodd-Frank Act, including breaking implementation down into
its numerous components and allowing
bankers to follow specific Dodd-Frank
issues. As implementation of the legislation progresses, the Dodd-Frank Tracker
is updated to reflect the most recent developments in each particular area.
The site, http://regreformtracker.aba.
com, also provides an archive of ABA’s
work during the implementation process,
and highlights the expanding resources
the association offers its members.
Features include news stories on DFA
proposals, comment letters and rules,
Wayne Abernathy, ABA’s executive
vice president for financial institutions
policy and regulatory affairs, said the
Dodd-Frank Tracker is meant to be a dy-
namic tool for communicating to mem-
bers and keeping them informed.
