Reporting Requirements in the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 [Updated November 13, 2008]   [open pdf - 134KB]

"The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA, Division A of H.R. 1424, P.L. 110-343) established numerous reporting requirements regarding a variety of issues. The entities charged with preparation of these reports include both new entities established by the act (e.g., the Financial Stability Oversight Board and the Congressional Oversight Panel) as well as agencies and officials who existed before the enactment of EESA (e.g., the Secretary of the Treasury and the Comptroller General of the United States). The recipients of these reports also vary, as well as their timing, frequency, and factors that trigger their development. These differences notwithstanding, all of the EESA reports appear to share a common purpose -- to provide information to Congress and other entities on the implementation of the act's provisions. No single entity receives all of the EESA-required reports. It is not readily apparent why some of the reports are to be filed with a particular set of eight 'appropriate committees,' some to a subset of those committees, and some to Congress as a whole."
