The Impact of Community Banks

Community banks improve our towns and cities by funding businesses and using local dollar to help families purchase homes, finance education, and build financial security. Community banks have 51,000 locations nationwide, employ 700,000 people,  and are in nearly every Congressional district. The best way to preserve this positive impact is to advocate and tell elected officials about the significance of community banks.

Durbin Amendment Video Released

The Electronic Payments Coalition (EPC) recently released a video on issues related to the Durbin Amendment. The ICBA is a member of the EPC and is calling on the nation’s community bankers to contact their members of Congress and urge them to support a repeal of Durbin amendment price controls on debit interchange. ICBA’s Be Heard grassroots platform makes it easy for community bankers to advocate support for a repeal.

Stop the Merchant Markup!

Write to your Member of Congress to urge them to support Durbin Amendment repeal and inclusion of the repeal in the Financial CHOICE Act.

ICBPAC is the only federal PAC dedicated exclusively to representing the community banking industry. Supported by thousands of community bankers, ICBPAC is a vital part of Be Heard. ICBPAC contributed $1.8 million to federal candidates for the 2013-14 election cycle, strengthening the community banking industry’s reputation in Washington.
