Even as the rulemaking began in August, the St. Louis Fed facilitated a series of general public discussions with regional and national bankers, respected economists and other experts to explore the Dodd-Frank Act and what it may mean for bankers and the financial industry.
The “Exploring the Implications of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” meetings were held in St. Louis, Little Rock, Louisville and Memphis between August and December to discuss many aspects of the Act from a variety of financial and economic areas. Some of the events invited participants to explore particulars of the Act from their industry’s perspective.

In addition, the St. Louis Fed began a new web site to track the rule writing. With the Dodd-Frank Regulatory Reform Rules site, you can track the progress of more than 200 proposals and rules that will be written by various federal agencies, including participating in the open comments periods for rules coming from the Fed, FDIC, and nine other regulatory agencies.
