A bipartisan group of U.S. Senators will soon introduce legislation that will seriously put at risk current, vital regulations that protect everything from workers health, climate policy, and the best interest of consumers.
Congress should not give big banks and corporate interests new leverage to intimidate regulatory agencies and block or water down rules.
In an environment where some needed rules are already delayed for years, overturned in court, or weakened in the regulatory process, more political interference with rule-making is the last thing we need.
Please tell U.S. Senator Mark Warner to reject this phony “regulatory reform” bill, which is really an attack on the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the other financial regulators.
These bills are supported by businesses that want to limit regulations, but we know that without regulations, some businesses will take advantage of the system, which has had dire consequences for our economy in the past.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is positioned to provide protections against the abuses of predatory lenders. We have to make sure their authority is not watered down.
Let’s stop big money from pushing people around.
This is why we need you to reach out using the links above, reminding Senator Warner that we don’t need to deregulate big banks and predatory lenders—we need to make sure government holds these corporations accountable to the people.
Thanks for speaking up on this important issue.
Sandra A. Cook
State Governing Board
