Washington, D.C. – Dennis Kelleher, President and CEO of Better Markets, issued the following statement on the announced retirement of Federal Reserve Governor Daniel Tarullo:

“For eight years, Fed Governor Dan Tarullo has been a fearless fighter for protecting the American people from an unstable financial system, another financial crash and an economic catastrophe.  Using robust data, rigorous analysis and compelling arguments to rebut baseless, if not fraudulent, self-serving claims from Wall Street, Governor Tarullo has stood steadfast as a sentinel on the front lines of a six-year war to turn the Dodd Frank financial reform law into a reality.  Sensibly enacting financial reform so that it would be durably embedded in our financial system will be his legacy.  The American people will forever be in his debt.”
