Senator Snowe has concerns about tax in Wall Street bill
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Republican senator whose support will be crucial to Democrats' chances of passing a landmark Wall Street reform bill said on Monday she was concerned about a bank tax added to it at the last minute.
"I have concerns about the bank tax because it emerged during the course of the conference," Olympia Snowe told reporters in a Capitol hallway, with Congress expected to cast final votes on the bill within days.
"I'm still looking at the legislation ... I would have preferred the bank tax not to be included," Snowe said.
