ICBA’s Plan for Prosperity (“the Plan”) is an agenda for regulatory relief that will allow community banks to thrive by doing what they do best — serving and growing their communities one loan at a time. By reducing unsustainable regulatory burden, the Plan will ensure that scarce capital and labor resources are used productively, not sunk into unnecessary compliance costs, allowing community banks to better focus on lending and investing that will directly improve the quality of life in our communities.
Each provision of the Plan was developed with input from community bankers nationwide and crafted to preserve consumer protections and bank safety and soundness. ICBA and community bankers are committed to working with Congress and the administration to enact the provisions of the Plan with the use of every resource at our disposal. If we act boldly and make fundamental reforms, the American economy will grow and prosper for the benefit of generations to come.
The plan covers provisions around:
- Access to Capital
- Regulatory Relief
- Mortgage Reform
- Bank Oversight and Examination
- Community Bank Tax Relief
- Agriculture & Rural America
