Washington, DC – Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4) released the following statement regarding the signing of the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act into law.

“I am proud to have helped craft the Wall Street reforms President Obama signed into law today. This is a huge step forward for consumers and an absolutely essential piece of our work to turn the economy around. Along with legislation to create jobs, prevent the free fall of the housing market, and my efforts to begin addressing our spiraling national debt, this new law will play a critical role in restoring American prosperity and setting us up for long-term financial stability.”
