          SUMMARY OF THE AMENDMENT TO H.R. 4566 MADE IN ORDER

    1. Waters (CA): Restores the Federal Reserve Board's

bank, provided that certain conditions are met. It would also 
allow the Fed to use alternatives to capital, as appropriate,

the bill's $10 billion threshold for the SEC's and CFTC's 
authority to issue stress testing rules for entities under 
their purview. (10 minutes)
