Keep Fighting Against the Giveaway to Big Banks & Wall Street
Senate bill 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act is a huge giveaway to big banks. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analyzed the bill, and the results were alarming. The CBO determined that the bill was likely to increase the odds that government funding would go to bank bailouts. This bill favors banks over people and allows the same risk in our financial system that caused the last financial crisis. On Tuesday, the Senate approved a motion to proceed on Senate Bill 2155. Democratic Senators have filed amendments to the bill, but very few amendments will be considered. Our Senators need to oppose this legislation and maintain the oversight requirements for big banks.
Call Senator Maria Cantwell (253) 572-2281
Call Senator Patty Murray (253) 572-3636
Not in Washington State? No Problem:
Hi, my name is __________, and I am a member of Olympia Indivisible. I am calling because I would like Senator ____________ to oppose bill S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act. This bill puts us at risk of another financial crisis, it erodes consumer protections, and it allows racial discrimination in mortgage lending to go unchecked. I hope the Senator will oppose it. Thank you.
