Waters to Senate Republicans: How Dare You!
Washington, DC, July 29, 2020
Today, Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, gave the following statement regarding the potential inclusion of legislation to weaken capital requirements for big banks in Senate Republicans’ HEALS Act:
“Senate Republicans have been asleep at the wheel for months while this crisis continued to balloon in scale. Now, they have put forth half-baked legislation which does absolutely nothing to avert the impending eviction crisis, prevent homelessness, or provide urgently-needed relief to renters who are struggling to make rental payments. This legislation once again shows that Republicans are willfully ignoring the reality of the crisis that is going on across the nation.
