U.S. House passes bill adjusting Dodd-Frank treatment of insurers

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to ease capital requirements for big insurance companies, an adjustment to the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial oversight law that enjoys bipartisan support but faces procedural hurdles in the Senate. The bill would provide relief to big insurers that regulators deem "systemically" risky, or so big their failure could destabilize markets.

U.S. Ex-Im Bank extension seen likely though mid-2015 -lawmakers

The U.S. Export-Import Bank is likely to have its charter renewed through mid-2015 this week, even though lawmakers in both parties said on Tuesday they see the extension as a second-best solution. Most Republicans said they would support an extension through June 2015 after influential conservative Representative Jeb Hensarling of Texas, who had pushed to shut the export credit agency down when its charter expires on Sept.

Funding for Trade Financing Gets Reframed

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling has spent much of this year waging a very public fight against the U.S. Export-Import Bank, saying the agency tasked with helping U.S. exports is a form of corporate welfare and crony capitalism. But now, even though he has an opening to insist that the bank's charter be allowed to lapse-it expires on the same day, Sept.

Leaders in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives said this week they would reauthorize the Ex-Im Bank before its charter expires on Sept.

RPT-Reuters Summit-U.S. exporters wary of short-term Ex-Im extension

U.S. businesses that rely on the Export-Import Bank for financing are uneasy about a Republican plan for a nine-month extension of the bank's charter, fearing uncertainty about the lender's future could put them at a disadvantage against overseas competitors. Export-Import Bank President Fred Hochberg told the Reuters Aerospace and Defense Summit on Wednesday that, although he did not want to pre-judge the decision by lawmakers, the norm had been five-year extensions.
