Obama meeting Dodd, Frank on US financial reform

WASHINGTON, May 21 (BestGrowthStock) – President Barack Obama will
meet on financial reform on Friday with Senator Christopher
Dodd, the chairman of the Senate banking committee, and
Representative Barney Frank, chairman of the House financial
services committee, the White House said.

The meeting is set for 11:30 a.m. EDT (1530 GMT).

The U.S. Senate approved a sweeping Wall Street reform bill
on Thursday, capping months of wrangling over the biggest
overhaul of financial regulation since the 1930s in a victory
for Obama on one of his top policy priorities.

The Senate bill must now be reconciled with a measure
approved in December by the House of Representatives before a
final package can go to Obama to be signed into law.
