On Wednesday, June 24th, ICBA sent this letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. In it, ICBA presents recommendations that urge Congress to take into consideration for inclusion for the next legislative package to address the fallout from the current pandemic on small businesses and jobs. These recommendations were developed in consultation with community bankers from across the country representing rural, suburban, and urban markets. As you well know, community bankers have a critical stake in finding solutions that will help their communities survive the crisis and rebound strongly once restrictions are lifted.
We urge you to contact your Congressional delegates and ask them to support the items outlined in this letter.
Thank you in advance for your support of community banks!
