Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) has been added as a keynote speaker at the ABA Government Relations Summit, to be held March 20-22 in Washington, D.C. Crapo joins a speaker lineup which also includes award-winning journalist and Fox News host Chris Wallace and Paul Mecurio, correspondent for the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
A member of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee since 1999, Crapo has been a strong advocate for regulatory relief, the expansion of homeownership and tax reform. As the 115th Congress prepares to take office next month, Crapo is expected to assume the role of Banking Committee chairman.
With 2017 shaping up to be a critical year in enacting pro-growth policies on Capitol Hill and in the new administration, all bank employees and directors are encouraged to attend the largest gathering of banking industry leaders in the nation’s capital. In addition to meeting with lawmakers, regulators and administration officials, bankers who attend the Summit will gain fresh insights and valuable information that they can share with their institutions and use to encourage colleagues to participate in these efforts throughout the year.
