If the bill passes, it will be sent to the full House and await action there.Throughout discussions of the bill yesterday, Democratic members of the committee raised numerous amendments aimed at stripping out various provisions of the bill, though none were approved.In addition to Durbin amendment repeal, the CHOICE Act contains numerous other NAFCU-sought measures, including one requiring regulatory agencies to improve their cost-benefit analyses and better tailor regulations to the size of regulated institutions.
