For the first time since the Dodd-Frank Act was enacted, the Senate is on the verge of passing S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act, a bill that provides regulatory reform for banks. This is a welcome effort that was made possible by bankers’ persistent outreach to lawmakers on behalf of their customers. Now, bankers must make a push to see this legislation cross the finish line.
We need your help in making sure that all senators hear from bankers in their state in support of S. 2155. Opposition groups are in full force, pressuring lawmakers to oppose any sort of regulatory relief for our industry. Call your senators TODAY and express strong support for this commonsense regulatory reform legislation.
