To come to a vote, the reforms need three SEC commissioners to approve them. The proposal is reported to focus on two possible remedies: allowing a floating NAV or imposing capital reserves that have strict restrictions for tapping.
 
Financial industry professionals say that both of these options undermine the basic benefits of money funds. They also say they will harm both investors and the economy and disrupting financing. The process would, in any case, extend to next year, which also happens to be past the election.
