Senate must act first on debit card fees: Bachus
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Republicans in the House of Representatives will not try to stall or change a crackdown on debit card fees unless they believe the Senate will go along, House Financial Services Chairman Spencer Bachus said on Monday.
The debit card fee provision was added to the Dodd-Frank financial reform law by the Senate, and the Senate must act first and take "ownership" of the issue before the House acts, Bachus told the Institute of International Bankers conference.
