Woodstock Vice President Tom Feltner joined Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) at a press conference to announce the passage of the Senate financial reform bill. Sen. Durbin, along with representatives from the Illinois Main Street Alliance, the Illinois Restaurant Association, Illinois PIRG, and the Chicago Federation of Labor, explained how the financial reform bill will help our communities recover and prevent another devastating financial crisis. For example, limits on the fees credit card companies charge small businesses will help small businesses invest in expansion and job creation. Another provision protects taxpayers from funding another bank bailout. Woodstock applauds Sen. Durbin on his leadership on financial reform.
