A telephone press conference sponsored by Public Citizen and Americans for Financial Reform to discuss the need for the financial reform bill to ban "proprietary trading" - banks' use of their own resources to gamble in the stock, bond and over-the-counter markets. Sens. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Carl Levin (D-Mich.) will introduce an amendment to prohibit banks from engaging in proprietary trading.
