Congress returns from its August recess today to begin work on a full fall agenda. Hearings scheduled this week include a House Financial Services Committee task force review of U.S. efforts to combat terrorist financing on Wednesday.
On Thursday, two of the panel’s subcommittees will hold a joint hearing on the Department of Labor’s proposed rule to redefine fiduciary and on H.R. 1090, which would require the proposed rule to first be issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Meanwhile, the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday will hold a nomination hearing on Adam Szubin to be Treasury’s under secretary for terrorism and financial crimes.
