Feingold says won't vote to advance Wall Street bill

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator Russell Feingold said on Monday that he will not vote to advance the financial-reform bill, denying his fellow Democrats the 60th vote they need to clear a final hurdle in Congress.

“My test for the financial regulatory reform bill is whether it will prevent another crisis,” Feingold said in a prepared statement. The bill “fails that test and for that reason I will not vote to advance it.”
