On Friday, Republican members of the Senate Banking Committee sent a letter to Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd (D-CT) expressing "concern" with Chairman Dodd's proposed timetable for a Committee mark-up next week of today's anticipated release of financial regulatory reform legislation. The Republican members stressed the need for "sufficient time to review the language" of the proposed legislation given its "sheer magnitude and complexity," and stated that a "markup scheduled in haste" would "certainly" prevent the Committee from "finding common ground" on bipartisan legislation.
