Congress considers rewrite of Dodd-Frank bill

The bill would turn the CFPB into an executive agency with a removable director, drastically limited powers and a budget controlled by Congress, the publication noted.

House Financial Services Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) will release a comprehensive rewrite of the bill by the end of April, a Republican committee aide said Tuesday.
