House Republicans are treading slowly in their efforts to take apart the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. That’s because they want to make sure that financial markets remain stable during the process, Rep. Scott Garrett, R-N.J., tells The Hill. He's chairman of the House Financial Services Committee’s Capital Markets subcommittee.

So Republicans will instead opt for specific changes that have a good chance of passage, Garrett said.
