Sen. Christopher Dodd, chairman of the Senate banking committee, is poised to propose that the Federal Reserve oversee banks with more than $100 billion in assets, a group that includes more than 20 institutions.

Hundreds of state-chartered banks also want to remain under the purview of the central bank, but policymakers have yet to decide on their oversight.
