ABA Thanks President Trump for Signing Regulatory Reform into Law

By Rob Nichols, ABA President and CEO

​“We thank President Trump for signing this bipartisan legislation into law and for the administration’s strong support for financial regulatory reform. This bill includes important reforms that will allow banks, particularly smaller institutions, to focus more of their time and resources on serving their customers and communities.
"Today’s signing ceremony concludes years of dedicated advocacy by ABA members across the country who showed that some of the rules in place were hurting not helping the country. House and Senate lawmakers from both parties listened to what we and others had to say and delivered this victory for both their constituents and the broader economy. We believe there is more that can and should be done to right-size financial rules while maintaining needed safety and soundness, and we look forward to working with members of Congress, the regulatory agencies and the administration to achieve more progress in the months ahead.”
