She also was a special adviser for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before winning election to the Senate in 2012. "As the Congressional Budget Office reported today, the bill that the Senate will be considering this week will 'increase the likelihood that a large financial firm with assets of between $100 billion and $250 billion would fail.' Why would any member of Congress vote to move us closer to another taxpayer bailout of large financial institutions?"
A Senate effort to relax certain banking regulations has cleared an early procedural hurdle with enough support from Democrats to show the bill has a good chance of passage.
Politico reports a number of Democrats could vote for less restrictions, including U.S. Sen.
The bill does this by raising the threshold at which banks would be subject to these requirements.
Despite pushback from Warren and other progressive senators, about a dozen Democrats have joined Republicans in signing on as co-sponsors of the legislation, which would make several changes to regulations impacting lenders, consumers and the economy. Sherrod Brown, the top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee.

"I'm very anxious about the consolidation of the banking industry in Virginia", said Kaine, who was Hillary Clinton's running mate in 2016 and who describes himself as a "huge" supporter of Dodd-Frank. Numerous regional banks stand to benefit from a provision that narrows the scope of institutions defined as "systemically important" under the Dodd-Frank Act. "And that pressure on the Fed will lead to a systematic weakening of the rules for all the big banks".
The bill is the culmination of years of work to change Dodd-Frank. That means more than two dozen banks would be shielded from some of the Federal Reserve's oversight.
Past year the House passed legislation that would have weakened numerous consumer protections codified in the law.
The bill would also change how the "supplementary leverage ratio" is calculated, a key capital requirement for the biggest banks that was created to ensure those financial institutions could handle a financial disaster. Drafting the letter were Ally Financial, American Express, Bank of the West, BBVA Compass, BMO Financial Corp., Citizens Bank, Comerica Bank, Fifth Third Bancorp, Huntington Bancshares, KeyCorp, M&T Bank Corp., Regions Bank and SunTrust Banks Inc.
