Statement on the passage of the CHOICE Act from Rose Oswald Poels, president/CEO of the Wisconsin Bankers Association 

“WBA applauds the U.S. House of Representatives on passing the CHOICE Act. This much-needed legislation will relieve some of the regulatory burden which is hampering Wisconsin banks’ ability to serve their customers and help businesses grow. We especially want to thank House Speaker Paul Ryan for his leadership in recognizing the important role banks play in the economy and advocating for the bill to be passed.

WBA also would like to thank Reps. Sean Duffy, Mike Gallagher, Glenn Grothman and Jim Sensenbrenner for their support in the bill’s passage.

We look forward to speaking with Wisconsin members of the U.S. Senate on how the passage of the CHOICE Act in the Senate will give Wisconsin banks more options on how to help businesses grow and families prosper, creating thriving communities.”
