Senator Brown, Top Dem on Senate Banking Committee, Wants to “Beef Up” CFPB

From Morning Consult's How Would Democrats Run the Senate Banking Committee?:

Remarks over the last year from Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, the committee’s top Democrat, make it clear that Democrats think they stand a chance at facilitating bipartisan legislation in the financial sector if they take back the Senate for the 115th Congress. Brown, as the ranking member, is the top candidate to lead the panel if Democrats win a majority in November. He has not formally prescribed a specific agenda of how Democrats would run the committee, but he hinted at some priorities last week in a brief interview with Morning Consult.

There’s “a whole host of questions,” Brown said. “What do we do with capital standards? What do we do with the Fed? What do we do to beef up the consumer bureau?”
