Message from the President
It’s time to put the “pedal to the metal” in the effort pass reg relief now! Congress has to act by December 11, 2015 to “git’r done.” For the next 3 weeks we need to help “drive” Congress to pass reg reform. See how you can help, click: Bankers: Act Now for Reg Relief.
We know there are significant efforts being made to get to a compromise. In a recent speech to a hometown Kiwanis Club, US Senate Banking Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said he has been negotiating with Democrats to find a “substantive and politically doable” solution that would ease the regulatory burden on small and midsized banks. “We are treating all the banks the same and putting them all in the same straight jacket. I want to try to give relief to the small and midsized banks because they didn’t cause the problem, but they’re paying the same price.”
