ABSTRACT
The article discusses legislation affecting financial planners passed by the U.S. Congress during 2008, and prospects for 2009. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 mandates that reform of financial services regulations be studied. Congressional hearings to this end could be held during 2009, and the Financial Planning Association (FPA) will make sure that its voice is heard. Several tax issues will emerge in 2009 including the scheduled expiration of tax cuts enacted by former President George W Bush.
