Finance Reform Passes House; Young Skips Vote

The House has also passed a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s financial regulatory system. Congressman Don Young was one of only two members of his party who did not cast a vote on Friday. The rest of the House Republicans voted against the bill, but it passed with Democratic support 223 to 202. Young’s office says he didn’t vote because he “had a previously scheduled obligation.”
