CBAI Urges Congressional Contacts During August Recess

Congress has adjourned for the August recess, and many lawmakers are accessible in their respective districts. Community bankers are encouraged to contact their congressmen to discuss the significant financial restructuring and other issues that await them when they return to Washington in September.

Here are talking points on the key issues you can provide to your congressman:
H.R. 3126, the Consumer Financial Protection Agency Act of 2009
H.R. 2897, the Bank Accountability and Risk Assessment Act of 2009, and CBAIs Letter to Congressmen urging support and co-sponsorship. Progress has been made on this issue as two more members of the Illinois Congressional delegations, Representative Schakowski and Representative Quigley, have recently agreed to co-sponsor H.R. 2897. Please express your gratitude for their continued support of community banking when you contact these two members, and continue to urge the other members of Congress to support and co-sponsor this important legislative measure.
