​Keating Media Appearances Focus on Farm Credit, 2016 Campaign

ABA President and CEO Frank Keating discussed regulatory burden and reforming the Farm Credit System in several local North Dakota and South Dakota radio interviews this week.

In appearances reaching more than 150,000 listeners in key markets across the upper Midwest, Keating emphasized the need for a level playing field between banks and the Farm Credit System, as well as for Congress to remove impediments to banks serving their customers — both elements of ABA’s Agenda for America’s Hometown Banks.

Keating also appeared this week on CNN International to discuss the 2016 presidential campaign. He said that middle-class voters would be closely watching to see what candidates best articulate a positive economic message.
