The House Financial Services Committee today reported to the House floor along party lines two bills that would effectively shut down the operations of the Federal Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) for at least the next year.

The bills were passed by a 32-27, party line vote today. However, analysts give long odds that the bills will become law.

The bill also requires that before the principal of a Commission or Board represented on the FSOC votes as an FSOC member on an issue before the FSOC, the Commission or Board must vote on the issue, and the principal must follow that vote at the FSOC meeting.

The bill permits Members of the Committee on Financial Services and the Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs to attend all FSOC meetings, whether or not the meeting is open to the public.
