Whitehouse Applauds Passage of Wall Street Reform Bill

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse today issued the following statement regarding the Senate’s approval of Wall Street reform legislation:

“Today’s passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform legislation is a significant step that will make Rhode Island families safer from the dangerous and reckless Wall Street speculation that drove our economy into recession. The passage of this landmark bill marks the official end of a foolhardy period of financial deregulation that left too many families without a job or without a home.”

The measure will now be sent to President Obama for his signature.
