ABA Joins with State Bankers Associations to Release Ads in Four States

Six new ads in four states urge Americans to contact members of Congress to thank them for supporting sound economic policies

​WASHINGTON — Today, the American Bankers Association released six new ads in four states asking Americans to contact members of Congress and urge them to continue supporting legislation that promotes pro-growth economic policies.  The ads highlight specific legislative issues important to banks and their ability to serve communities and support the broader U.S. economy. They urge constituents to contact the following lawmakers: Rep. Andy Barr (R-K.Y.), Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.), Rep. Vicente Gonzàlez (D-Texas), Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.).
 
The new ads will begin airing as soon as today, and bring to 12 the number of ads ABA has run with our state association alliance partners in 2018. They were developed in partnership with the Florida Bankers Association, Kentucky Bankers Association, Nevada Bankers Association and Texas Bankers Association.
 
“Our new advertising initiative marks the next major step forward for ABA's political engagement,” said Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO. "These ads draw attention to legislative issues that are critical to banks and the customers they serve across the country. They will help ensure that key lawmakers hear their voice.”
 
All of the new ads are available here.
 
The American Bankers Association is the voice of the nation’s $17 trillion banking industry, which is composed of small, regional and large banks that together employ more than 2 million people, safeguard $13 trillion in deposits and extend nearly $10 trillion in loans.
