U.S. commercial paper issuance

U.S. commercial paper issuance has been sharply impacted by money market regulatory changes, and with today's reported declines analysts have a hefty 19.4% drop in total S.A. outstanding commercial paper from a recent-peak at the start of May that translates to a $217.4 B decline. The drop has been particularly steep for financial sector paper, where analysts've seen a 29.2% drop from a recent-peak that was also at the start of May that translates to a $166.8 B decline. The regulatory change makes money funds that hold government debt more attractive to investors, hence punishing non-government short-term debt issuers.
