Sen. Mike Enzi (Wyo.) Speaks Out Against Agency before Vote Sen. Mike Enzi (Wyo.), a senior Republican on the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, spoke out against agency before the vote. "The reason this is of utmost concern to me and has been for the past three years is the lack of congressional oversight and the blatant privacy intrusions of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau," he said. Enzi objected to the bureau's revenue stream, which is through the federal reserve instead of the Congress. "The bureau, as allowed by the Dodd-Frank Act, could collect up to $600 million every year but is not subject to the congressional appropriations process," he said. close
