    brief description:

    Summary of accounting related provisions in H.R. 4173, the Wall St. Reform and Consumer Protection Act. NOTE: As of Jan. 9, 2010, the Senate has not yet acted on its version of the bill. After the Senate passes its version, the Senate and House will have to reconcile their bills in conference committee, so everything is still in play, so to speak, until final legislation is voted on and signed by the President.
