Federal Legislation Action: Ask Your Senators to Oppose Bill S.2155

Keep Fighting Against the Giveaway to Big Banks & Wall Street

Background:

Senate bill 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act is a huge giveaway to big banks. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analyzed the bill, and the results were alarming. The CBO determined that the bill was likely to increase the odds that government funding would go to bank bailouts. This bill favors banks over people and allows the same risk in our financial system that caused the last financial crisis. On Tuesday, the Senate approved a motion to proceed on Senate Bill 2155. Democratic Senators have filed amendments to the bill, but very few amendments will be considered. Our Senators need to oppose this legislation and maintain the oversight requirements for big banks.
