On July 21, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. In connection with the signing, the White House also released the following animated film.

We are continuing to work on providing guidance on compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act for community banks. Links to all of our posts on the Dodd-Frank Act can currently be found here, and we are working to provide a better overview of our content related to the Dodd-Frank Act.

The text of the Dodd-Frank Act can still be difficult to find online (and has been made more difficult by the House Financial Services Committee removing a copy of the Act from their website). However, the Library of Congress has the official version (in both PDF and text) available online (see the links next to #6) and the U.S. Government Printing Office has also now published the adopted law.
