Against bank bailout; against Dodd-Frank bank regulation
Both Heller and Berkley said it was a mistake to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999, which made it easier for banks to expand. But they differed on the banking reforms recently passed. Heller mentioned he was the only member of the
Nevada delegation to vote against the bank bailout. He called the Dodd-Frank bank regulation bill "cover for those who voted for the bank bailout." Berkley called her opponent "Mr. Deregulation."
