WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the House passed S. 2155, the “Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act.” This legislation provides the much-needed relief to our nation’s community banks and credit unions from the burdensome Dodd-Frank regulations. 

“It doesn’t take rocket science to know that one-size-fits-all regulations don’t work," Rep Marshall said. "The community banks in western Kansas handle different types of businesses than banks on Wall Street.”
