Thanks to banker grassroots advocacy, bills ABA is advocating as part of its Agenda for America’s Hometown Banks are racking up bipartisan co-sponsors in Congress. As members of Congress return home for the August recess, ABA encourages bankers to set up meetings and ask their lawmakers to co-sponsor these bills — or thank them if they already have. Among the bills are:
- Regulatory relief (H.R. 1210 and 1233): 54 co-sponsors for H.R. 1210, 82 for H.R. 1233. H.R. 1210 has cleared the committee.
- Mutuals and thrifts (H.R. 1660 and 1661): 10 co-sponsors for H.R. 1660, 8 for H.R. 1661.
- Exam fairness (H.R. 1941 / S. 774): 55 co-sponsors in the House, 16 in the Senate. H.R. 1941 has cleared the committee.
- Tailored regulation (H.R. 2896): 22 co-sponsors in the House.
