Senate Democratic Inquiry Targets Banks, Wall Street Settlements

Banking Committee member Sherrod Brown wants to know whether banks changed any behavior after penalties

 

WSJ-

A powerful Democratic senator has launched an inquiry into bank misconduct, asking top financial institutions to turn over information about the settlements they have entered into with federal agencies over the past decade.

Sherrod Brown of Ohio, the top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, asked banks in a letter dated Sept. 30 to to provide details of any “legally enforceable judgment, agreement, settlement, decree or order dated January 1, 2005 to the present,” involving 15 federal agencies including the Department of Justice, the Federal Reserve, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and several Treasury Department units.

The inquiry could add fuel to growing criticism by lawmakers and others that such settlements have failed to deter repeated bank misbehavior.

    Hooray! This article sounds great, but I don’t want to have to subscribe to the WSJ to read it all.
    Is there any place else we can read it without paying/subscribing?
    I checked out Sherrod Brown’s latest news, but saw nothing about it.
