As Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability, Allison is now responsible for developing and coordinating Treasury's policies on legislative and regulatory issues affecting financial stability, including overseeing the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Allison is also Counselor to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
