Financial Regulatory Reform

The Hill: "Democratic efforts to overhaul Wall Street inched closer to the finish line on Wednesday as the House approved the legislation and a key Senate Republican announced her support. The House approved the conference report in a 237-192 vote. Nineteen Democrats voted against the measure, while three Republicans voted for it... The legislation aims to prevent future taxpayer-funded bailouts; boost regulation over credit cards, mortgages and other products; regulate the $600 trillion derivatives market; and increase oversight of broad financial system risks, among other measures."

Rep. Ike Skelton was one of the Democrats to break ranks and vote against the bill.  Click here for full vote breakdown.
