President Barack Obama will lay out on Wednesday his vision for reshaping U.S. financial regulation, aiming to tighten oversight of the largest firms whose excessive risk-taking triggered a global recession.

The proposals will include closing one bank regulator and creating new overseers for big-picture economic risk and consumer financial product safety, according to a document detailing the administration's proposal.

In a package of reforms that takes on many tough jobs while avoiding at least one, the administration proposes putting the Federal Reserve in charge of monitoring the largest financial firms in the hope that holding one agency accountable will prevent a repeat of the severe banking and capital markets crisis that has shaken economies around the world.

"We must act now to restore confidence in the integrity of our financial system," the administration said in the 85-page document.

"The lasting economic damage to ordinary families and businesses is a constant reminder of the urgent need to act to reform our financial regulatory system and put our economy on a track to a sustainable recovery."

Months of debate in the U.S. Congress lie ahead. Committees of both the Senate and the House of Representatives have scheduled more than a dozen hearings on regulatory reform between now and mid-July. Conservative House Republicans have already offered their own rival plan.
