March 14, 2017
Hon. Mauricio Bernardo
I commend the Italian Parliament for their leadership in bringing forward the debate on the need for reinstatement of Glass Steagall legislation.
As a Republican in the United States Congress I have joined with Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (Ohio) in introducing legislation, HR 790, for the reinstatement of Glass-Steagall. It is my hope that the United States Congress will follow the Italian leadership and bring a debate to the United States House of Representatives because I believe this to be in the best interest of the American people.
