Statement

ABA Applauds Senate Passage of Economic Relief Package

“We welcome the Senate's strong, bipartisan action to help the nation respond to this unprecedented healthcare crisis. America’s banks are already taking steps to assist customers and businesses affected by COVID-19, and this legislation will allow banks to provide even more critical assistance to borrowers in their communities. Banks of all sizes stand ready to do their part to support the economy and put the nation on a quick path to recovery. We thank congressional leaders for their hard work on this bill, and urge the House to move quickly to get it to the president's desk for his signature.”
