Background from the White House:

Today, the President hosted a meeting at the White House with financial regulators to receive an update on their progress in implementing Wall Street Reform. Eight years after the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, the participants discussed efforts to continue to implement the strongest consumer financial protections in history that have afforded millions of hard-working Americans new protections from the kinds of abusive practices that predated the crisis. They also updated the President on their work to make our financial system safer and stronger, as well as to prevent the kinds of recklessness on Wall Street that we saw lead to devastation on Main Street. Finally, they discussed the importance of coordinating to bolster cybersecurity, to make our financial system stronger and more resilient.
