 Geithner Op-Ed: "A Dodd-Frank Retreat Deserves a Veto"

On the eve of the one-year anniversary of enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner discusses how that historic law is helping rebuild a stronger pro-growth, pro-investment financial system in an op-ed published in the July 20, 2011 edition of The Wall Street Journal. He also makes clear in the op-ed that the Obama Administration will stand against those who are trying to slow down and weaken Dodd-Frank’s new rules of the road, starve regulatory agencies of resources, and block nominations so that they can ultimately kill reform. As secretary of the Treasury, he will recommend that the President veto any legislation passed by Congress that would undermine the vital financial protections included in Dodd-Frank.

Read the op-ed.
