We’ve been talking about getting some relief from the Dodd–Frank law. We have an opportunity to get that done this year. The situation is that we getting very close to final decisions being made about what policy material will be included in the very large omnibus appropriations bill. It’s literally all the appropriations bills rolled into one bill. There will be winners and losers in this process. Not every policy matter that interest groups want will be included in the bill.
The winners will be those who want it the most. Do you really want some reform this year? Do you want more lending for 2016? If so, please contact your House member and two Senators.
We can’t presume they will help us. Even if they have indicated support, we have to keep reminding them. It’s a mad house there as Congress tries to close out business for the year.

This link is MHI’s system to contact your two Senators and your House members. It’s really easy and quick.
Let’s do it now!
P.S. We really need to win this year….conditions are always changing in Congress. We never know what the situation will be like in 2016. It’s an election year and bills will be harder to pass next year!
