The “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act” (S. 2155) is expected to hit the Senate floor in February. While not as radically extreme as the House’s CHOICE Act, this bill would still put us at risk of another financial crisis, allow racial discrimination in mortgage lending to go unchecked, and erode critical consumer protections.
Bottom line: Because this bill has been flying under the radar, it currently has 12 Democratic co-sponsors in the Senate. This bill goes way beyond “helping community banks.”
Call our Senators Murray and Cantwell with this simple and important message:
My name is ___________ and I am calling as a member of Olympia Indivisible to tell Senator _______ to vote NO! on Senate Bill 2155 that will gut consumer protections for home loans. We don’t need another housing crisis of families losing their homes because of risky lending practices.
