ICBA Marks One-Year Anniversary of S.2155 Passage

Washington, D.C (May 21, 2019)—This week the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) is marking the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155). ICBA and community banks were instrumental in its passage.

While regulators have moved swiftly to implement key provisions as noted in ICBA’s S.2155 Implementation Matrix additional reforms, which are highlighted in ICBA’s Community Focus 2020 legislative and regulatory agenda, are needed to support localized lending and economic growth.
