ABA and the Arkansas Bankers Association Release New Ads Thanking Rep. French Hill

WASHINGTON — The American Bankers Association joined the Arkansas Bankers Association today in releasing new ads thanking Representative French Hill for protecting small businesses and employees during the pandemic.

“As a former community banker, French Hill knows the importance of small businesses, and acted swiftly to ensure they could continue paying their employees during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “His proven leadership was critical to passing the CARES Act, which is why his colleagues chose him to be on the panel overseeing the important programs it created.”

"French Hill’s support for the Paycheck Protection Program helped make sure 375,000 workers in Arkansas kept getting a paycheck and that more than 42,000 small businesses could keep paying their bills,” said Lorrie Trogden, president and CEO of the Arkansas Bankers Association. “He has stepped up for Arkansas small businesses and their employees, and he continues to fight for our economy by pushing for more relief to assist businesses still struggling to survive.”

The voter education campaign will begin airing in Arkansas as soon as today. Click here to see the ads.
