“ICBA and our nation’s community banks thank the Senate for passing much-needed legislation to address the current liquidity and credit crisis and avoid damaging economic consequences for Main Street America. We now urge prompt approval of the legislation in the House and look forward to having the president quickly sign the measure into law.
