The WBA Government Relations Committee (GRC) reviewed the association’s 2019-2020 state-level legislative session priorities during a recent meeting. These priorities are based on past banker feedback suggesting what WBA’s advocacy efforts should be focusing on. GRC Chair Jeff Schmid, Fox River State Bank, Burlington led the meeting with bankers representing 25 different Wisconsin institutions as they discussed 36 different priorities. The GRC will send their final recommendations to the WBA Board of Directors for final approval in the near future.

Keep in mind that you can still add to the conversation. All members are invited to send legislative ideas to WBA’s Jon Turke via email at any time. Just because the official recommendations are being finalized, it doesn’t mean your ideas cannot still be incorporated. Every one of the 36 proposed priorities came from bankers like you. We need your guidance on how we can best help Wisconsin’s banking industry. So, please share your thoughts with Jon.
