Dear Representatives:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I write urging you to vote YES on the on S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2018. This bipartisan legislation includes several changes to federal banking laws that will provide essential relief from some of the most burdensome financial regulations that have weighed on American small businesses and consumers.

We urge you to vote YES on S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

For nearly eight years, Americans have suffered under the crushing regulatory weight of Dodd-Frank. In that massive overhaul of our federal banking laws, Washington created more problems than it set out to solve, as is often the case when it comes to regulations. These regulations have had a regressive impact, hitting local and regional banks hardest hardest while driving up the price for small businesses, families and individuals to obtain a loan or mortgage.

S. 2155 is a step in the right direction, and lawmakers must seize the opportunity before them to undo some of the harm that has come from the overly burdensome regulations of Dodd-Frank. Americans for Prosperity stands ready to work with lawmakers to provide further relief once this first step has passed. We urge passage of these initial reforms that will bring much needed relief to small and medium banks, opening up more opportunity for small businesses and American families.

We urge you to vote YES on S. 2155, the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,

Brent Wm. Gardner
