Voting Record Highlights Lawmaker Stands on Financial Reform in 117th Congress
Americans for Financial Reform released a record of how Members voted on consumer protections, climate financial regulation, Wall Street, and financial industry legislative measures during the first session of the 117th Congress.
The report includes a selection of votes on legislation and on confirmations of President Biden’s nominees to positions important for financial regulation and Wall Street accountability.
“The votes on these measures show when lawmakers voted to protect individuals and families, investors, small businesses, the incorporation of climate risk into financial regulation and the integrity of the financial system, and when they chose to prioritize the profits and wealth of Wall Street insiders and the financial services industry,” said Oscar Valdes Viera, research manager at Americans for Financial Reform.
The report, entitled “How Members of the 117th Congress Voted on Taming Wall Street and Protecting Consumers,” lays out how lawmakers voted on legislation and nominees. The report is supplemented by online appendices tabulating the votes on the House Floor, in the House Financial Services Committee, and in the Senate.
