WorldCom and Legislative Needs
"The startling revelations about WorldCom underscore the necessity to restore trust and confidence in our markets, where over 60% of the American public now invests. It is imperative we move forward with strong accounting reform and investor protection legislation. I am pleased that Senate Majority Leader Daschle has said he plans to move the bi-partisan Banking Committee bill immediately when we return from our July 4 recess."
