ICBA Reg Relief Bill Set for Full Senate Vote

Mar 02, 2018
The Senate is now scheduled to vote next week on community bank regulatory relief legislation—meaning now is the time for community bankers to double down on their outreach to senators in support of the bill through ICBA’s Be Heard advocacy center.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed cloture on the ICBA-advocated Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155), setting the table for a vote by the full Senate.

To familiarize news media with S. 2155, ICBA released a media alert that included a detailed summary of the legislation’s positive impact on community banks and the communities they serve. The summary lays out the Plan for Prosperity-inspired bill and how it would promote local economic growth and mitigate industry consolidation.

While S. 2155 enjoys broad bipartisan support, it has begun facing attacks from anti-reform policymakers and outside advocacy groups.

To ensure full Senate passage, community bankers can use ICBA’s grassroots action center to tell their senators to vote in favor of this much-needed legislation.
