Full List of Lawmakers Who Voted to Weaken Banking Regulation

  • Congress approved a rollback of financial regulations in 2018 that may have contributed to the failure of Silicon Valley Bank.
  • The bill axed regulatory requirements for regional banks with less than $250 billion in assets.
  • Democratic Representative Ro Khanna has criticized the bill on Twitter, saying too many Democrats voted in favor of it.

Republicans and Democrats in both chambers of Congress approved a rollback of financial regulations in 2018 that may have contributed to the failure of Silicon Valley Bank.

Bipartisan majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate approved S. 2155, which axed regulatory requirements for regional banks with less than $250 billion in assets and was signed by then-President Donald Trump, meaning such banks did not need to submit to stress testing.

There has been renewed focus on the bill after Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), a regional bank based in California’s Silicon Valley tech corridor, collapsed on Friday after its customers initiated a run on their deposits.

The bill made changes to the earlier Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which had been signed by then-President Barack Obama in 2010, and required banks with more than $50 billion in assets to submit to stress testing.

SVB had over $200 billion in assets by the end of 2022 and was one of the 20 largest banks in the U.S.

Democratic Representative Ro Khanna highlighted the legislation on Twitter on Monday, saying that “Too many Dems voted yes” at the time.

“The run on SVB is a reminder of the need to impose strong financial regulations on banks. The Republican Party succeeded in passing the bill eviscerating Dodd-Frank against the warnings of progressives like myself and @BernieSanders,” Khanna said.

The bill passed the Senate on March 14, 2018 by a vote of 67 to 31, with 17 Democrats approving the legislation. The bill passed the House on May 22, 2018 by a vote of 258 to 159, with 33 Democrats voting in favor of it.

Here is a full list of lawmakers who voted for the legislation. Some of those who voted in favor of the rollback have since left office.
