Obama Admin 85-page White Paper on Reg Reform Posted by WSJ

An 85-page document which appears to be the Obama administration's White Paper on financial regulatory reform - anticipated to be officially released at a press conference featuring President Barack Obama and U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, has been posted this evening on the Wall Street Journal's website.

[UPDATE 11:30 pm: Later in the evening, wsj.com subsequently updated the way it refers to the document (e.g. where it appears linked beside related articles like the one further below), calling it "Draft of the White House Overhaul Plan." Similarly, the NYT then posted a link to a similar looking 85-page document, which the NYT describes as "Draft of President Obama's Financial Regulation Proposal." The NYT added, "This is a recent draft of the proposal that was sent to members of Congress." ]

For highlights, see the accompanying article on wsj.com by Damien Paletta and Kara Scannell, White House Details Financial Revamp Plan.
