On May 22, 2018, the US Congress passed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155), the most significant piece of legislation for financial institutions since the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2010. Mayer Brown’s Global Financial Markets will be hosting a three-part teleconference series on this topic. This is the first call in the series and will be followed by calls on June 7 and 14.

While the Crapo Bill (S.2155) is not a full overhaul of the Dodd-Frank Act, it is expected to have significant consequences for the US banking industry. Please join Mayer Brown lawyers David Sahr, Donald Waack and Matthew Bisanz on May 31 for a 30-minute discussion of how the Crapo Bill affects the Volcker Rule, Reg YY’s enhanced prudential standards, regulatory capital rules, brokered deposits and federal thrift activities.
