In the wake of passage of a sweeping financial overhaul bill, many professionals in Charlotte say they are not sure of the full ramifications of the legislation but are thumbing their way through the hundreds of pages in hopes of finding out.

DeMarcus said the bill’s intent is a good one. The government is trying to protect consumers, he said.
