Nichols Outlines Top Legislative Priorities for 115th Congress

In a letter to congressional leadership today, American Bankers Association President and CEO Rob Nichols outlined several pro-growth policy priorities “that will help our nation’s economy and communities thrive.”

These policy goals include tailored regulation, more flexible mortgage rules, a sustainable housing finance system, flood insurance reform, a level playing field for all kinds of financial services providers, tax reform, small business lending support, student debt relief, stronger data security standards, an end to price caps on interchange fees and a more sensible regulatory posture.

“ABA is calling on the [Trump] administration, Congress and bank regulatory agencies to work in a bipartisan manner to pursue legislative changes that will keep financial institutions strong and capable of fulfilling their mission,” Nichols said.
