We do not know yet if the amendment for a permanent 404(b) Sarbanes-Oxley reprieve was included or excluded. We will probably know tomorrow.
From the Associate Press/MSNBC.com:
"The Senate has passed a sweeping overhaul of how the government regulates banks and Wall Street.
The legislation is aimed at preventing a repeat of the financial meltdown two years ago that plunged the nation into a deep recession.
The Senate passed the bill on a 59-39 vote, giving President Barack Obama a major policy victory. The bill now must be merged with a House version. A key House negotiator predicts the bill will reach Obama's desk by the Fourth of July."
