A subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing entitled “Examining Legislative Proposals to Reform the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau” on Thursday, October 24, 2013. The hearing will be held by the Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit.   

This seems like pure political theater since there is no realistic chance that the Senate will pass any such reforms. That train left the station when the Senate confirmed Richard Cordray as CFPB Director this past July.
