  • A House Financial Services oversight and investigations subcommittee hearing entitled "Who Is Too Big to Fail: Does Title II of the Dodd-Frank Act Enshrine Taxpayer-Funded Bailouts?";
  • A House Ways and Means select revenue measures subcommittee hearing on the discussion draft of "Small Business and Pass-through Entity Tax Reform";
  • A House Small Business Committee hearing entitled "Patent Reform Implementation and New Challenges for Small Businesses"; and
  • A Senate Banking securities, insurance and investment subcommittee hearing on the impact of cross-border bank resolution on taxes and the economy.
Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Office of Complex Financial Institutions Director Jim Wigand, Federal Reserve Division of Banking Supervision and Regulation Director Michael Gibson and U.S. Department of the Treasury Office of International Banking and Securities Markets Director William Murden are scheduled to testify during that hearing.
