Since our Jan. 12 News update, "Stable NAV MMF Bill Stalls," we've seen two more mentions of H.R. 2319, the bill to bring back the $1.00 NAV for Prime Institutional money funds. In the first, Politico Pro writes "Investment Companies Fight Effort to Undo Fund Rules." They comment, "ICI is lobbying to preserve money market fund regulations enacted in 2014, as the House Financial Services Committee prepares to vote on bipartisan legislation that would roll back the regulations. ICI told senior lawmakers in a letter Friday that it opposes the House bill, citing "substantial and costly operational changes" that had been undertaken and its view that markets had adjusted to the regulatory overhaul."
