Better Markets Statement on the Release of the House Appropriations Committee’s FY2016 Financial Services Bill

Washington, D.C. – Dennis Kelleher, President and CEO of Better Markets, issued this statement following the release of the House Appropriations Committee’s fiscal year 2016 Financial Services bill, which further underfunds the SEC cops on the Wall Street beat:

“Wall Street’s allies in Congress continue to put American families at risk by not fully funding the SEC at the President’s requested levels and by pushing special interest provisions. The American people have suffered enough. America’s elected representatives in Congress should stop doing Wall Street’s bidding and put the SEC cops back on the Wall Street beat.”
