Broad Coalition Opposes US Capital Proposal

Broad Coalition Opposes US Capital Proposal

A broad, and unexpected, coalition has come out in opposition to US regulators' plan to increase capital requirements for big banks.

It has faced criticism from both sides of the political aisle as the comment period came to an end last week.
