Why is Congress rolling back bank regulations?

The world was in the middle of a financial crisis 10 years ago. When the economy stabilized the 2010 Dodd-Frank law was passed to prevent another major financial meltdown. So why did Congress just vote to roll back some of those Dodd-Frank rules?

MPR News host Chris Farrell talked to three guests for perspectives on the new financial rules.

Keith Ellison, U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 5th congressional district.

Neel Kashkari, head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.

Jena Martin, professor of law, West Virgnia University and author of "When The Levees Break: Re-Visioning Regulation of the Securities Markets."
