Along with a push toward greater uniformity insecurities regulation, the debate over what's broke and what isn't has spurred debate among the "big four" financial planning organizations over what rote future regulation should play in the profession. Following the introduction of Congressman Jack Fields' proposed overhaul of Depression-era securities laws, the Institute of Certified Financial Planners (CFP), CFP Board of Standards, International Association of Financial Planning, and National Association of Personal Financial Advisors got together to examine the legislation. Nonetheless, the radical nature of the original bill, which preempted state regulation in most areas of securities regulation, came as a shock to state regulators, and prompted a strong reaction from U.S. Democrats and others who were not consulted in the original drafting process.
