WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), the Ranking Democrat on the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, today issued the following statement following House passage of the Promoting Job Creation and Reducing Small Business Burdens Act:

“This misnamed bill is another attempt by House Republicans to advance Wall Street’s interests at the expense of the American people,” Brown said. “Rolling back protections that safeguard against practices that nearly crippled our economy creates unnecessary risks for taxpayers and investors. It’s time the House advance legislation in the interest of Main Street, rather than Wall Street.”
