White House objects to FIT21 Act

President Joe Biden’s administration will neither support nor veto the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21).

In an official statement dated Wednesday, the Executive Office of the President expressed opposition to the current iteration of the FIT21 Act should the U.S. House of Representatives vote in favor of it in the coming hours. 

The statement highlighted concerns that the FIT21 Act, as it stands, would affect America’s regulatory framework for digital assets. Despite this oppotion, the Biden administration emphasized its willingness to collaborate with policymakers to develop clear crypto legislation.

“The Administration is eager to work with Congress to ensure a comprehensive and balanced regulatory framework for digital assets”, the statement read.

Long road ahead

The White House’s stance somewhat aligns with U.S. SEC Chair Gary Gensler, who has also voiced opposition to FIT21. Gensler repeated chants of non-compliance from crypto industry stakeholders, stressing a need to push investor protection policies over bootstrapping business models built around nascent technology. 

The House Agriculture Committee Republicans took issue with Gensler’s take, as FIT21 garners bipartisan support ahead of a forthcoming vote.

The FIT21 Act’s journey does not end with a House vote. If passed, it will proceed to the U.S. Senate for further consideration. Holland & Knight senior policy advisor Scott Mason told crypto.news that the support of major Democrats could be crucial during this stage.

“Democrat leadership is not whipping against it, so if it gets 50 or 75+ Dems to vote for it, it sends a better signal to the Senate to act”, Mason stated in a private note.
