EU Regulators May Push for Euro Bonds

Move would put pressure on Germany to drop its opposition to jointly sold bonds.

European Union regulators may push for joint bond sales by euro-area nations to help contain the debt crisis, putting pressure on Germany to drop its opposition.

The European Commission said it may present draft legislation on euro bonds when completing a report on the feasibility of common debt sales. The commission, the EU’s regulatory arm in Brussels, earlier this year opposed such a step because of German-led opposition.
