WASHINGTON — House Financial Services Committee members and their colleagues have drafted almost 250 amendments that they would like to see added to the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009, including one that would prohibit state and local governments and public pension funds from entering into swaps.

The amendments are pending before the Rules Committee, which is expected to permit only one to two dozen of them to be proposed during debate on the legislation, HR 4173, in the full House, which could begin today, sources said. Votes could come Friday. The legislation combines several individual bills already approved by the financial services committee and referred to several other committees.
