Trump administration cuts dozens of staff at financial markets watchdog: source

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration moved on Wednesday to drastically shrink a government agency tasked with identifying looming financial risks, notifying around 40 staff members they would be laid off, according to a person familiar with the changes.

The employees at the Office of Financial Research (OFR) were told on Wednesday they will lose their jobs as part of a broader reorganization of the agency previously announced by the Trump administration which has pledged to slash financial regulation.

The Office of Financial Research (OFR) is an independent bureau within the United States Department of the Treasury that was established by the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, whose passage in 2010 was a legislative response to the financial crisis of 2007–08 and the subsequent Great Recession.[3] Established as a department within the Treasury, the Office is tasked with providing administrative, technical, budget analysis and other support services to the Council and its affiliated agencies.[4]

13. "The Office of Financial Research (OFR)... was established by...Dodd-Frank"
