Coverage of the Conference Committee’s Deal on Financial Regulation

Waiting to go through the many pages, scrawled notes, and updates upon updates of H.R. 4173 (especially on derivates), we offer for the moment news coverage of the conference committee’s agreement on the financial regulation bill.

Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) issued a statement, “Lincoln Hails Conference Approval of Tough Wall Street Reforms.”

Also, Senate Banking Chairman Chris Dodd (D-CT) issued a statement hailing passage. Critics are noting this quote from the Senator as reported in The Washington Post: “No one will know until this is actually in place how it works. But we believe we’ve done something that has been needed for a long time. It took a crisis to bring us to the point where we could actually get this job done.”
