Complete the form and download our latest white paper, “The Trump Administration’s First 100 Days: Impact on Securities and Banking Regulations,” by John M. Pachkowski, J.D. and Mark Nelson, J.D.for an overview of the changes Trump’s administration has implemented since President Trump was sworn into office. Some of these changes have already had a direct impact on securities regulations, while other changes may come in the form of new policy directions for the SEC and CFTC.
- Trump had earlier pledged to "dismantle" the Dodd-Frank Act, but the resource extraction disapproval resolution only nullifies the SEC’s implementing rule and does not repeal the authority for the rule contained in Dodd-Frank Act Section 1504.
- The April 2017 guidance on conflict minerals only addresses enforcement with respect to the due diligence efforts required by companies that must reach Item 1.01(c) of Form SD.
- SEC nominee Clayton said he had “no specific plans for attack” on Dodd-Frank and that rulemaking required by statute should continue.
- Lawmakers in the 115th Congress have begun to move smaller bills that resemble CHOICE Act provisions and which could eventually pass individually or as part of a larger package.
- The Treasury Secretary’s use of FSOC’s statutory mandate as a means for coordinating regulators to streamline existing regulations.
