WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) - incoming Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, announced today he intends to hold a hearing on the current state of the stock market:  

“People on Wall Street only care about the rules when they’re the ones getting hurt. American workers have known for years the Wall Street system is broken – they’ve been paying the price. It’s time for the SEC and Congress to make the economy work for everyone not just Wall Street. That’s why, as incoming Chair of the Senate Banking and Housing Committee I plan to hold a hearing to do that important work.”
