Business Owners Urge Senate to Approve Consumer Financial Protection Agency

Business for Shared Prosperity, an AFR affiliate, has been getting attention with their message of support for financial reform.  The coalition, made up of business owners from around the country, recently put out this press release (PDF) asking the Senate to approve the Consumer Financial Protection Agency.

Their message has been picked up by the Dow Jones Newswire, who quoted small business owner Lewis Prince who said, “Politicians love to point out that most new jobs are created by small business. They should listen to the business owners who didn’t wreck the economy and want real reform to prevent a repeat.”
