The Slips Go to Capitol Hill

posted by Bob Lawless

Tomorrow, Katie Porter and I will be testifying at a subcommittee hearing for the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. The title of the hearing is "Consumer Protection and Middle Class Wealth Building in an Age of Growing Household Debt." More information on the hearing is available here, which is also the same place the written witness statements and a link to streaming video eventually will appear. Part of the discussion will be the conditions that led Congress to create the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and how those conditions remain with us.
