With Congress back in Washington from its August recess, ICBA continues encouraging community bankers to use its grassroots alerts and customizable resources on various pressing advocacy issues.
1071 Customer Tools: ICBA offers customizable resources to educate and engage customers on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s ICBA-opposed Section 1071 rule, including social media content, a sample letter to Congress, and a sample op-ed.
Grassroots Alerts: Community bankers can also continue using ICBA’s Be Heard grassroots action center to urge their members of Congress to:
Support a congressional resolution to block the 1071 rule and dictate that it has no force or effect.
Oppose legislation to impose routing mandates on credit card transactions.
Support the bipartisan SAFE Banking Act to establish a cannabis banking safe harbor in states where cannabis is legal.
Co-sponsor legislation to exempt from taxation the interest income on farm real estate and rural mortgage loans.
Advance the farm bill on schedule with key community banking priorities.
