Suggested Introduction 2:
According to Adams, the legislation (HR 4173), approved by the House-Senate conference committee would require banks and other financial institutions to hold more capital to protect against future financial upheaval.
Suggested Introduction 3:
Adams says the agreement reached between the House and Senate was a conference report and will now go back to both the full House and full Senate for a vote.
Suggested Introduction 4:
Adams says the Council sees a lot of positive coming from this legislation.
