Letter Opposing House Effort To Hobble Bank Regulators

Today, the House Financial Services Committee holds a cattle-call markup of bills designed to  weaken consumer, taxpayer, depositor and investor protections. As it often does, it claims its efforts are on behalf of small banks and credit unions. But the goal of the Tailor Act is not really to help them, it is to weaken the broad authority regulators have to protect the public. Oh, and they are already required to "tailor" regulations for small or rural banks and credit unions. Download the letter from U.S. PIRG and other Americans for Financial Reform coalition members below.
