The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act1 is long and complicated, and months of controversy surrounded its passage. Nevertheless, it is but the opening shot in a barrage of reform initiatives for financial institutions and markets. Numerous provisions require rule-making by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other agencies for their implementation. In addition, numerous studies are mandated by the regulatory agencies and the Government Accounting Office (GAO). Although Dodd-Frank greatly increased the SEC’s powers and responsibilities, the SEC was unable to obtain all of its wish list for the regulation of the municipal securities market. Dodd-Frank did, however, grant the SEC some of the enhanced authority it desired over the municipal securities market and provided for studies that may eventually result in further reforms.
