The House Financial Services Committee has announced it intends to meet to consider mark-ups of bills to repeal the conflicts minerals disclosures (H.R. 4248) and mine safety disclosures (H.R. 4289) on November 14, 2017.

I’m guessing both will pass, but I recommend that anyone working on conflicts minerals to continue to work. Bills passed by the Financial Services Committee have a relatively poor track record of being enacted into law, at least over the short term. Similar provisions were included in the Financial Choice Act 2.0 which has not been enacted.
