WBA members recently met with Congressman Glenn Grothman in his Fond du Lac District Office. This event was a part of WBA’s ongoing advocacy efforts. The bankers involved discussed a variety of issues including the state of the economy in the district, lending activity, regulatory and tax reform. The conversation specifically addressed the benefits of the CHOICE Act as well as the Access Business Credit (ABC) Act. The area bankers were able to use local examples of how these issues were directly affecting their customers.

This type of feedback is invaluable information for lawmakers to hear so they truly understand how their decisions are affecting banks and their customers. Thank you to the bankers who were able to attend.
