Investments in the Opponents of Reform

Public Citizen released a report that the 16 representatives sponsoring two amendments that would weaken critical consumer protections in financial reform legislation have received at least $2.3 million from the financial services sector since the beginning of 2009. The amendments were sponsored by Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.) and Rep. Walter Minnick (D-Idaho). The Bean amendment would block states from enforcing their own consumer protections laws. The Minnick amendment would set up a feckless alternative in place of the proposed Consumer Financial Protection Agency.

But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
