Building on the success of last week’s phone-your-senator push, this week ABA is encouraging all bankers to tweet their senators urging them to support S. 1484, Sen. Richard Shelby’s regulatory relief package for banks and their customers.
ABA has provided easily clickable sample tweets and an online directory of senators’ Twitter handles. Bankers are urged to include their hometown and bank name in their Twitter profiles so that their tweets will be considered constituent contact by senators’ offices.
“Advocacy for our industry comes in many forms — calls, visits, letters, traditional media and social media,” said ABA EVP James Ballentine. “To get real regulatory relief this year we need all banks actively involved in communicating with their elected officials.” Tweet to your senators now.
