U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Charlotte Republican, opposes reinstating Glass-Steagall, a Depression-era banking law that kept banks from offering both commercial banking and investment banking services. He said it would have “absolutely nothing to do with creating a more sound and secure financial system.” Pittenger, pictured in a 2013 file photo, favors raising the amount of capital banks are expected to maintain instead.
