ABA is encouraging bankers to use Twitter to ask their members of Congress to co-sponsor three House bills addressing regulatory burden for bankers. The bills are H.R. 2673, H.R. 4521 and H.R. 4466. Bankers should check the co-sponsor lists at each link and their representatives to co-sponsor the legislation if they haven’t already -- and thank them for their support if they have.
Bankers can visit house.gov, enter their zip codes and find their representatives’ Twitter handles via members' websites. Use ABA’s suggested tweets over the next two weeks to share perspectives on regulatory burden. Members of Congress and their staff monitor Twitter for constituent perspectives, so bankers can be sure their tweets will be seen. For more information, contact ABA’s Erin Scheithe.
