AUGUSTA — A round-table to showcase continuing concerns over regulation of the financial industry will be held in the Maine State House.

State regulators, economists, representatives of seniors, consumers, small business and the financial community are invited to U.S.

PIRG’s event in the State House on Tuesday. U.S. PIRG is a federation of state public interest research groups.

U.S. PIRG says basic consumer protections could have insulated Maine citizens from actions by large financial institutions that led to the financial meltdown that brought the world economy to the brink of collapse.

On Tuesday, Maine citizens and organizations will discuss why they support strong consumer protections and reforms of Wall Street.
