ABA Statement on Midterm Election Results

By Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO

​“After a hard-fought election, millions of Americans went to the polls to cast their ballot and elect the next Congress. The results may have produced a change in the balance of power in Congress, but they have not changed our agenda or our willingness to work with dedicated lawmakers from both parties to pursue commonsense economic and regulatory policies that allow banks to create jobs, growth and opportunity for all Americans.
“We congratulate the winners and look forward to building on the solid, bipartisan foundation around banking policy established in the current Congress with the passage of the first financial regulatory reform bill in nearly a decade. ABA and our members look forward to welcoming the new faces as well as returning lawmakers with the information and analysis they need to ensure they are putting in place policies that allow banks of all sizes to fully serve their customers, communities and the country.”
The American Bankers Association is the voice of the nation’s $17 trillion banking industry, which is composed of small, midsize, regional and large banks that together employ more than 2 million people, safeguard $13 trillion in deposits and extend nearly $10 trillion in loans.
