In Advance of Tomorrow's Five Year Anniversary, Brown Applauds Enactment of Wall Street Reform
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) – ranking member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs – today released the following statement on this week’s fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
“Five years after Wall Street reform became law, our economy is getting stronger and we have a financial system that is safer, more stable, and works better for taxpayers, investors, and consumers,” said Brown. “We’ve come too far to allow special interests and their allies in Congress to undermine reform and leave the American people exposed to the abusive lending and reckless Wall Street gambling that almost destroyed our economy. Now we need to make sure more Americans feel the benefits of the recovery, without going back to the days of AIG, Countrywide, and Lehman Brothers.”
