ABA urges bankers: Write to senators to keep momentum on reg reform

July 19, 2017

In case your bank is not a member of the American Bankers Association, we are working with them in an effort to make sure bankers' collective call for regulatory reform are heard.  

“I think our two senators agree with us on this issue,” OBA Chairman Guy Sims said. “The question that everyone keeps asking is 'what will that look like?' The answer to that question is not certain at this point, but it's pretty clear that time is wasting insofar as actually getting something done is concerned.

“Nonetheless, it will be helpful to add your voice to that of bankers all across the country as we try to get the Senate to focus on meaningful regulatory relief. ABA has made it easy and (below) is all you have to do."
