Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed January 12, 2016
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"In 2010, I supported an amendment to the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation included in the final law which required an audit of the Federal Reserve’s actions during the financial crisis. That report was released in 2011 and found no significant problems with the Fed’s activities."
Federal Reserve Transparency Bill January 12, 2016
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"The Fed releases detailed transaction-level data on the discount window lending and open market operations. This is relatively new. This was required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law. Clearly, Congress knew the Fed was not as responsible and open as it should be. One of the things we did in Dodd-Frank was this reform. All securities that the Fed holds are published on the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Web site."
Federal Reserve Transparency Bill January 11, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Wall Street reform ensured that the Government Accountability Office could audit the Federal Reserve, and in accordance with the law, the Government Accountability Office has carried out those audits. In the year after the passage of Dodd-Frank, the Federal Reserve was audited 29 times. Since that time, the Federal Reserve has been audited 102 times."
The President’S Leadership January 11, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Tomorrow the President will deliver his final State of the Union Address to the American people. I look forward to hearing ways in which he plans to continue and push our Nation forward during his last year in office. We will do everything in our power, as Democrats, to build on the strong legacy President Obama has established. We will continue to fight to strengthen the middle class and working families by addressing the mountain of student debt that saddles Americans’ higher education. We will continue fighting to increase the minimum wage. We will not rest until wages of women match the wages of their male counterparts, and we will continue to keep Wall Street accountable by prioritizing Main Street and protecting the good work the Dodd-Frank legislation did."
Sunshine For Regulatory Decrees And Settlements Act Of 2015 January 7, 2016
Hank Johnson, D-GA
"The same thing with Dodd-Frank, which protects people from Wall Street overreach. Those rules have created opportunities for small businesses to come in and start creating real jobs in America."
